The Youth Agency was so pleased to participate in the first ever Forrester High Shool virtual award ceremony last week and we were even more delighted to present the Youth Agency Award for Personal Achievement to S6 pupil Jason Howie.
We do, of course, celebrate all of the young people that come top of the class academically but the Youth Agency award is about more than great results. It recognises the personal qualities of young people as well as their ability to overcome difficulties and challenges.
This year’s winner, Jason, is a remarkable young man. Jason is funny, charismatic and hard working (when he wants to be), and he has shown a level of drive, determination and commitment that we can only admire. These qualities have allowed Jason to flourish through school and to make the most of the opportunities that have been presented to him. We’re confident they’ll serve him well into the future and we look forward to hearing all about his journey. Good luck Jason!
