Ard­na­mur­chan High School pupil praised by Highland Coun­cil

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’
