Lamont Pridmore honours outstanding business studies student
Two Cumbrian students have been honoured for their outstanding performance in business studies with a prize from award-winning family-run chartered accountancy firm Lamont Pridmore.
Geoffrey Larkin, a former sixth form student at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, was presented with the Lamont Pridmore Business Studies Student of the Year 2012 award in a prize-giving ceremony at Wordsworth Street Methodist Church.
He was chosen for the award after achieving a grade A* at A-level in business studies and economics, physics and chemistry, as well as a grade A in general studies and mathematics. He is now studying for a degree in mechanical engineering at Durham University.
Lamont Pridmore partner Chris Lamont was on hand to present Geoffrey with his prize of a trophy and book tokens.
This prize is designed to recognise and encourage the next generation of great business minds, so we are delighted to be able to present it to someone who has achieved outstanding results through hard work and commitment.
Meanwhile, Charlotte Askew, a sixth form student at St Benedict’s Catholic High School, was presented with the Lamont Pridmore Business Studies Student of the Year 2012 award at the school’s annual prize-giving ceremony.
She was chosen for the award after achieving a B grade in A-level applied business, demonstrating an impressive progression from her target grade, showing commitment to her business studies and being motivated to exceed her own personal goals.
Stuart Edger, managing director of our Whitehaven office, was on hand to present Charlotte with her prize of a trophy and a book token – an award she did not know she was going to receive until the night itself.
We are committed to recognising and rewarding the achievements of hard-working local students and are absolutely delighted that this year’s award has gone to Charlotte, who has demonstrated real commitment to her studies, exceeding all expectations.
As a national award winner ourselves we understand the sense of achievement such recognition can bring and hope this inspires many more young people to strive to reach their goals.
