Student Awards


Student Awards 2020: Let’s Celebrate YOU! 

 

 

Every year, Bristol Community College honors our students at the Student Awards Ceremony. While we were not able to host the ceremony in person this Spring, we did celebrate the best part of the night by recognizing the amazing contributions our students made to the Bristol community in a virtual capacity.

 

See the video above for all the 2019-2020 award recipients.
