ADAM GREEN - Former A Level Student and 2012 Olympic Torchbearer “I had been volunteering at the College radio station - 99.8FM KCC Live at breakfast for several years. Despite the early mornings and unsociable hours, my friend and I broadcasted the breakfast show live and on time each day without fail. KCC Live’s programme controller nominated me to carry the Olympic Torch because of all my work at the station and I was delighted when I found out I had been selected. It was a true honour to carry the torch and something I will remember for the rest of my life.”

These might include subject-specific master classes and conferences in venues across the country and sometimes further afield.
