Vote for Bronwyn in Education Awards

Bronwyn Ryan has been shortlisted in the Evening Telegraph’s Proud of Education Awards.

The Year 11 student, who is the charity rep for Sanger, was nominated for the Unsung Hero award for her tireless efforts in raising money for the house charity, Macmillan, and the extra lengths she has gone to.

Last summer, she devised a quiz in her spare time and sold copies in the Academy. She also organised a beetle drive in the local community to raise further funds. So far this year, Sanger has raised around £600 for Macmillan.

On top of all this, Bronwyn has proved to be an exemplary student who was recently awarded an honours tie in recognition for her attitude and achievement.

She has also played a key role in KSA's anti bullying group, which was awarded bronze in Northamptonshire's Accreditation Award thanks to the measures taken to reduce incidents of bullying. This term, Sanger awarded Bronwyn the special Unsung Hero Jubilee coin in recognition of her contribution to school life.

Head of House Hannah Sambrook nominated Bronwyn and she is delighted that one of KSA's star students is in the running for the county award.

She said: "Bronwyn has gone above and beyond as charity rep. She's worked with the community and she's always coming to me with ideas on how we can raise more money.

"She is a role model for other students and she's an outstanding student but she's humble about what she does. She doesn't sing and shout about it - she's just concerned with doing the right thing and how much money we're raising."

Bronwyn said: "I was quite shocked and pleased when I found out. I've always enjoyed helping people out and I've always tried to raise money for different things.

"Organising things like the beetle drive has given me more confidence and it's made me feel more involved with school life."

Evening Telegraph readers will be asked to vote in the Unsung Hero category. All finalists will be invited to a ceremony on July 11 at the Holiday Inn in Corby.
