Ulster Unionist MLA Jo-Anne Dobson was thanked for her support for the Dickson Plan campaign by Lurgan College Principal Trevor Robinson in his prize day speech.
The MLA was quick to give some praise back to the school. Commending the pupils, staff and parents, she said: “The sheer pride and enthusiasm of everyone taking part in speech day shows the dedication and commitment which exists at Lurgan College.
“Why anyone would want to put under threat the future of a school which consistently delivers academic excellence for the young people of Craigavon is beyond me.
“Just looking at the pride on the faces of pupils as they collected their prizes leaves me in no doubt that Mr Robinson and his staff are continuing the proud tradition of academic excellence in Lurgan. A tradition which I for one will continue to fight to retain for future generations.”
