Youth activities convener Donald Young represented the Rotary Club of Lochaber at Ardnamurchan High School’s recent Celebration of Success evening and had the honour of presenting the Endeavour Award to sixth-year pupil Kay Christian. The Endeavour Trophy is awarded to individuals for their personal endeavours.
Kay has just finished S6 and will soon be 18. She lives in Strontian with her family and will be leaving home after the summer to study for an MA degree in Liberal Arts at Dundee University.
Head teacher Christopher Millar-Craig said: ‘Kay received the Rotary award for endeavour this year as she has kept going steadily through all her studies and has demonstrated admirable commitment to her duties as head girl, with the Pupil Council, Eco Schools Project and other groups and events.’
Past-president Mr Young also presented the runners-up trophy for the Rotary Young Chef competition to Katie MacGillivray.
Donald enjoyed the event and added: ‘It was an excellent evening with an amazing number of wonderfully talented youngsters especially the young musicians. It was a pleasure to have been asked to attend and present the award. Events such as this confirm Rotary’s commitment to supporting the youth of Lochaber.’
