Leigh UTC alumni, Cameron McIntosh returned to his former college to be part of their recent glittering awards evening. What is truly remarkable is that Cameron was one of the worthy award winners in 2015 and returned to be part of the team at 8point3 LED who sponsored a table and gave one of this year’s awards.
Cameron is pictured here with George Smith, the 2016 Year 12 Engineering Award winner, and The Leigh UTC Principal, Steve Leahey.

Whilst at The Leigh UTC, Cameron met the college’s valued business partner, and now his employer, 8point3 LED with whom he undertook work experience and was even mentored by Managing Director, Ashley Bateup.
Cameron commented “I could empathise with George, having sat in the same seat as him at last year’s Awards Dinner.  The award that I received from the sponsor company really motivated me to excel and I hope that George is able to use this as a springboard to achieve great things at The Leigh UTC.  I fully expect to see George following in my footsteps and attending next year’s Awards Dinner as a guest of one of the award sponsors.”
