We are so pleased to share this fantastic news from one of our Year 9 students.
Mai Wilkinson was nominated as a finalist for the Lord Lieutenant’s Young Person of the Year Awards. She was invited to attend a formal dinner and awards evening at County Hall in Leicestershire, and saw off fierce competition from other outstanding young people to be named ‘Most Improved Sports Person of the Year’.
Mai trains as a Junior with Ivanhoe Archers and has represented the County in Archery, she practices for around 25 hours a week including attending 4 sessions with her club.
Mai said, “I have no idea who nominated me for the award. It was a really posh evening with fancy food. I chatted to other
nominees, the other finalists were a gymnast and a clay pigeon shooter. I didn’t think I would win the main award, I was shocked. Lady Gretton (pictured above) who presented the awards was very nice to all of us. We get to go back to the awards next year
when the new winners will be announced.”
Well done to Mai from everyone at Ivanhoe. Watch this space as we may have a future Olympian in our midst.
