Guest speaker, Daniel Adams

Approximately 500 students who successfully completed Higher National programmes such as HNC or HND, BA degree, SVQ, VTCT and PDA awards crossed the stage, supported by 1500 proud family members and friends.

One special guest who was among the platform party was Daniel Adams, Executive Director of Mary’s Meals.

Daniel, from Dundee, began his career as a journalist with DC Thomson & Co Ltd, writing for a range of magazines, newspapers, comics and books. Following an inspiring interview with Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow – the founder and chief executive of Mary’s Meals – Daniel felt compelled to leave journalism behind and join Magnus in his mission.

Daniel’s motivational address at the ceremony gave the audience the message that nothing is impossible when we face the challenges of life with compassion and determination.

The ceremony closed with piper, Angus Kennovin, playing the students out into the City Square.
