In October, six students were selected at the College for the Rotary Youth Leadership Award. The students were interviewed by Rotarians Chris Stilton and Malcolm Westgate. After a difficult judging process and much discussion, they announced the winner to be Kathryn Wright in Year 12.
Both judges were very impressed with all the candidates but said that Kathryn stood out. They said “Kathryn is a bright and determined young lady who knows her own mind and is clear on her strengths and weaknesses. It was a very good interview which highlighted the benefits she could gain from the RYLA course. Kathryn doubts her true abilities which hides some of her many strengths. An excellent candidate and a deserved winner. We think she will benefit most from attending the course.”
Kathryn was presented with her award at the Frome Selwood Rotary award ceremony on the evening of Tuesday 21 June, held at the Fox & Hounds in Tytherington. There was a fantasitc astmosphere where she was joined by Lily Breese in Year 10 who received the Rotary Young Citizen of the Year Award.
Congratulations to them both for such outstanding achievements and being such great role models and ambassadors for the College.
