On Tuesday evening, July 6, the Boessenkoolprijs was awarded for the 52nd time in the PIUS X College in Almelo. This prize is an annual tradition with which Machinefabriek Boessenkool wants to underline that it is closely involved in technical training and future technical talent in the region.
Prize for Sam Witteveen
In recent years, a group or team has regularly been the prize winner, but this year the Boessenkoolprijs will again go ‘normally’ to one student of the PIUS X College. After a full year with corona, it was nice to be able to do the award ceremony normally again this year. For Sam, the surprise was great when he was called to the front.
There he was told why he had been chosen. Always a positive attitude during the lessons. Never report a problem with or with a teacher. Always thinking in solutions. Highest mark during Practical Exam. Huge growth in the PIE department in 2 years. Then Eelco Osse presented him with the well-known Boessenkoolprijs certificate and a practical and attractive prize: a well-stocked toolbox!
“Machinefabriek Boessenkool awards the Boessenkool prize every year to create a connection,” says Eelco Osse. The prize is intended as an incentive for technical students to opt for challenging, innovative positions in technology. This is important for the students themselves, but certainly also for all companies in the metal & electrical sector that are constantly looking for talented employees. That also applies to Boessenkool, because without well-trained staff we have no right to exist.”
