Two Pembrokeshire College students have recently been shortlisted for a 2018 St Davids Award.
These national awards acknowledge the extraordinary achievements of individuals who live in, or originate from, Wales.
Health and Social Care student Bethany Roberts, has been announced as a finalist in the Young Person category while Access to Bioscience student Mair Elliott is a finalist in the Citizenship category.
Seventeen year old Bethany is a youth representative on Milford Haven Town Council and chairs the Pembrokeshire Youth Council. Having delivered speeches at the National Assembly for Wales and Westminster, Bethany is committed to ensuring that the voice of young people is heard at the highest level. Bethany has also helped to organise many social events for older people within her community.
Meanwhile, 21 year old Mair is a mental health and autism campaigner who is dedicated to raising awareness of both autism and mental health and campaigns for improved services through talking about her own personal experiences.
Mair is a trustee of Hafal, Wales’ largest service provider to people with mental illness, and has provided evidence to government committees as well as sitting on expert reference groups, speaking at events, and much more.
Both Bethany and Mair will find out if they have picked up an award when the winners are announced at the Senedd in Cardiff on the 22nd March.
