HUISH Episcopi Academy student Adam Evans was a winner for being an ‘excellent ambassador’ for the arts.

He was among those recognised at the 2014 Pride of Somerset Youth Awards.

He has thrown himself into shows, choirs, performance groups and a recent leading role in a production of Les Miserables at the school.

The sixth-former also leads a drama club for primary school pupils, runs workshops – and has somehow found time to be named St John Ambulance Cadet of the Year as well.

The awards are run by the Rotary Club of Taunton, your Somerset County Gazette, Bridgwater Mercury, Chard and Ilminster News, Burnham and Highbridge Weekly News and local radio station BBC Somerset.

A prize fund came from sponsorship from the Rotary Club, Avon and Somerset Constabulary, Somerset Cricket Museum and Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

Certificates were presented at Somerset College’s conference centre in Taunton, which was provided free by the college.
