Ardnamurchan High School pupil praised by Highland Council
THE HIGHLAND Council welcomed nine youngsters who have achieved their gold Duke of Edinburgh Award to its latest meeting.
Council convener Councillor Bill Lobban presented them with awards in front of family and friends at a meeting in Inverness.
The nine who attended the presentation were part of a wider group of 25 participants from the Highland area who gained their gold awards in the past 12 months.
Rubby Tilling from Ardnamurchan High School was one of nine who attended the presentation.
Before presenting them with their awards, Mr Lobban said: ‘To achieve a gold award takes a lot of hard work, time and commitment. You are credit to your families, those who have supported you through the scheme and to yourselves.
‘These awards are challenging so receipt of a gold award marks you out as having dedication, motivation and strength of character.
‘I am sure that through the varied activities each of you has undertaken, you have discovered the satisfaction of personal achievement and helping others.
‘On behalf of the whole council, I congratulate you all and wish you all a very prosperous and fulfilling future.’
