TWO former pupils at Mildenhall College of Technology who have made names for themselves in the sporting world were at the forefront of the school’s annual awards ceremony on Wednesday.
But it was the students themselves who proved to be stars, not only academically but also in caring for their community.
Tom Youngs, assistant manager of Mildenhall Town Football Club and a former student, presented the prizes and told students that with determination they could achieve their goals.
Ellie Gatlin, a former pupil who plays rugby for the England Under 20s, donated her England shirt to the school.
Among the award winners was Charlotte Fovargue, who had turned herself around and was studying for her GCSEs as well as volunteering at Fulbourn Day Care Centre for adults with special needs.
Taylor Bewick, who has Duchesne Muscular Dystrophy, won the Outstanding Endeavour Trophy, while Victoria Archer-Peacock won the Beatrice Carter Shield for Service to the Community.
Bethany Scott won the prize for best attendance and the student vote for best teacher went to James Stockley who teaches history.
