Student Awarded Rotary Club Prize for Leadership

NEW College student James Butterfield has received the Rotary Club’s award for Leadership.

James went through an interview process at college, during which the Rotary Club had to decide whether he or another student would go on a residential trip to Hebdon Hay with all expenses paid.

During the trip, James learned how to improve his leadership and other business skills. He said “I’m really happy I got the chance to go on this trip, I’ve learned lots of new skills and I’m thrilled about the award”

At the end of the trip James gave a presentation to the President of Pontefract’s Rotary Club and some of its members about his experiences.
