Our community is full of incredible young people
Molly Gayler from Davenant Foundation School won the Epping Forest Young Citizen of the Year 2016 for her wonderful work supporting children with disabilities and her passion for sport. Molly referenced the American athlete Gail Devers who once said that ‘every accomplishment starts with the decision to try’.
Molly said: “If my form tutor had not made the decision to ‘Try’ with me, then I would not have been given the opportunity to participate in such a wonderful and humbling experience.”
“Our community is full of incredible young people who deserve to be recognised. Please nominate them for the Epping Forest Young Citizen of the Year award and open doors for a young person who really deserves it.”
Do you know a young person who lives in the district aged between 11 and 18 and deserve to be recognized?
Nominate them for the Young Citizen of the Year – applications close on Friday 25 November 2016.
