This week, Richmond upon Thames student Georgia Lewitt won the Jack Petchey award for Dance.
The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme recognises the positive contributions, efforts and endeavors of young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex. These achievements include being a great role model, volunteering, overcoming personal challenges and supporting others over and above expectations. For the Award, the winner will receive a £250 grant, which can be used for anything that will benefit their class.
Each term, outstanding RuTC students are nominated by their classmates for a Jack Petchey Award and this week Georgia received the award for her contributions and commitment to her course.
Georgia’s tutor Hannah Fryer said "Georgia has been unwavering in her commitment to her dance studies this year. She has worked hard to overcome her own challenges, always ready to receive feedback from both her peers and tutors alike. She is always incredibly kind and helpful to her fellow dancers and is an incredibly worthy winner."
