The ceremony was in recognition of those who had done exceptionally well in their course examinations.

Hafizul thanked both his parents for their unwavering support. “They’re my source of inspiration,” said the youth who aspires to take up a career in animation. “I too wish to thank my lecturers for their assistance and guidance.”

Adam Dean Ng Amar Ng, 21, one of the other awardees, was equally eager about his career prospects. Adam did a Diploma in Management course at the same college. He was top of his class and was duly recognised for his achievement.

The youngest of three siblings, Adam’s recipe for success is to simply concentrate on his course work and be attentive during classes. “That’s my only methodology besides discussing matters with my lecturers,” he added.

Menteri Besar of Perak’s wife, Datin Seri DiRaja Saripah Zulkifli, gave away the awards to the winners.
