Bradford College has revealed the five people who will be awarded Honorary Fellowships during graduation ceremonies at St George’s Hall this December.

An Honorary Fellowship is the highest honour that the College can give to individuals to recognise their outstanding service or support to the College or city and district of Bradford.

Those receiving the Honours will include Lord-Lieutenant for West Yorkshire Dr Ingrid Roscoe, Anglican Bishop of Leeds for the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales Bishop Nick Baines, chair of Rex Procter & Partners Paul Mackie, businessman and former naval officer Khalid Al-Hamar, and BBC Look North weather forecaster Paul Hudson.

Bradford College Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Welsh, said: “We wish our graduates and Honorary Fellows every success in their future careers. We are very proud of them and we look forward to celebrating their invaluable contributions to the continued development of Bradford, the region and communities overseas.”

Principle of Bradford College, Kathryn Oldale, added: “We congratulate our 2014 graduates and Honorary Fellows and wish them every success for the future.

“As graduates of Bradford College, they will be following in the footsteps of over 180 years of remarkable people who have made a difference regionally, nationally and internationally.”

The graduation ceremonies will be broadcast live to audiences on 1 December and 2 December on the Big Screen in City Park and online.
