Rotarians hail Chester-le-Street A Level star
Updated 3:23pm Monday 31st March 2014 in News
CHESTER-le-Street Rotary Club has recognised the youngster who has achieved the best academic performance in the area.
Each year the club presents Rose Trophy to the pupil at a Chester-le-Street school who scores the best marks in their A Levels.
This year’s recipient is Joshua Dismore, formerly of Park View School, Chester-le-Street, who is now studying engineering at Cambridge University.
In his A-Levels he scored A stars in history, maths, physics and an extended project. He also achieved A grades in further maths.
Rotary Club spokesman John Stewart said: “We look to encourage the area’s youngsters.
“This award has been running since the 1950s and we have had winners who have gone on to be a professor at Miami University and one who works at Harwell, the atomic research facility.”
