Three Derwen College students were nominated for young citizenship awards for their outstanding contribution to college and community.
The students were nominated for The High Sheriff of Shropshire’s Outstanding Young Citizenship Award and were invited to attend a ceremony with the county’s High Sheriff Rhoddy Swire.
Students Bethan Charles, Maisie Thomson and Carter Gough were put forward for the award for embracing opportunities while at the college. The trio have gone above and beyond in their efforts at college: Bethan has represented Derwen College through her work with Student Union Board and National Union of Students; Maisie has challenged herself through Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards; and Carter has pushed himself through competing in table laying at high-pressure national skills shows.
Derwen College Principal Meryl Green said she was delighted with the recognition for the students.
She said: “Our students should be very proud to have been shortlisted for the Sheriff of Shropshire’s Outstanding young Citizenship Award. The three of them have made exceptional contributions to college and community in very different ways.”
