TV ‘Secret Millionaire’ joins college awards celebration
Telford College welcomed back one of its most famous former students to hand out the prizes at its end-of-year awards evening.
Mo Chaudry, who appeared on the Channel Four TV show ‘Secret Millionaire’, grew up in Wellington and began his education at the college.
He has since become one of the UK’s most successful Asian businessmen, with a portfolio including the country’s largest tropical indoor aqua park, Waterworld, in the Potteries.
Mo gained some of his first qualifications at the college’s former King Street campus, on his way to a sparkling career which has seen him launch a range of companies including health clubs and spas, adventure mini golf sites, and property investments.
His most recent move has been to take a controlling interest in Pulse, a leisure group which is partnering more than 75,000 leisure facilities in 31 countries, across six continents.
Mo spoke to students about the importance of ‘seizing the moment’, following their dreams and instincts, and refusing to be defeated by life’s disappointments or setbacks.
Awards were handed out to more than 40 students for their outstanding achievement and significant improvement over the current academic year.
“We were delighted to welcome Mo Chaudry to talk about his memories of his time at our college, share his motivational and inspirational story, and help recognise our students’ success.”
