Birchfield Harriers Presidents Special Achievement Award for Kidderminster Student

Georgia Lees from Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre in Kidderminster has been awarded the Presidents Special Achievement Award at a ceremony attended by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham at Birchfield Harriers Running Club. Georgia who trains twice a week at the Birchfield Harriers Club, which is based at the Alexander Stadium, Birmingham also competes with Holy Trinity at local and national events, received the award for qualifying and competing at 3 different disciplines of cross country, road relays and the 800 metres in the 2017 season at National level. Although Georgia had a very strong season in 2017, last October she contracted glandular fever and doctor’s orders meant she was not able to compete for the rest of the season. Having only recently returned to training and to the track, Georgia is now fully fit. Said Georgia: “I am extremely honoured to receive the Presidents Special Achievement Award and thrilled to have won the Norma Blaine Award for cross country. I’m now focusing and enjoying the resumption of my training and the 2018 season ahead.” Holy Trinity Headteacher Mrs Pamela Leek-Wright commented: “'Since Georgia joined the school in Year 5, she has shown a great aptitude for sports and her commitment has grown year on year. I have always been impressed by Georgia's determination and the endless hours that she spends training. There is truly no more deserving candidate for these awards, we are all extremely proud of this remarkable young lady.”
