Student in a Million Awards

Emma Schrod, the immediate past President of the Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls Autism and Disability Club has won a national award – the ‘Student in a Million Award’ in the Role Model Category. Emma received her award at a glittering ceremony in Brighton on 1st September from Ben McBean,

who is a former Marine. He was horrifically injured by a landmine explosion while serving in Afghanistan. Ben lost his left arm and right leg in the explosion, but within months of his life-threatening injuries, he completed the London Marathon. Ben gave a great speech about the importance of positive thinking, and of focusing not on what you can't do, but what you can do.

The Student in a Million Awards was hosted by The Student Room Organization. Ivan Corea, Teacher-in-Charge of the FBA Autism and Disabilities Club said: ‘I am delighted that Emma (who was an FBA Autism Ambassador) has won this national award for the amazing work our students undertook with young people with autism. We are having a very successful strategic partnership with the RIEES Autism Club, founded by Mr. Ade Ogunleye. RIEES is a local autism charity based at the Romford Baptist Church. Our girls have shown compassionate leadership and have been an inspiration in the community.’ To read about Emma Schrod winning the national ‘Student in a Million Award,’ please click on the link:
