A SCOUT has been awarded the top prize for his achievements.
Jordan Harrop, 18, of Linthwaite, recently gained the Queen’s Scout award – the top award for personal achievement – and the Duke of Edinburgh Gold award.
He joined Beavers aged six and has worked his way through the Scout movement to become Assistant Cub Scout Leader at Slaithwaite Cubs.
Jordan, a former Colne Valley High School pupil, now attends Huddersfield New College, where he is taking chemistry, biology, maths and English. He hopes to become a primary school teacher.
He completed his Duke of Edinburgh and Queen’s Scout award with the Linthwaite Explorers.
In recognition of becoming a Queen’s Scout, Jordan will take part in the St George’s Parade at Windsor in April.
To achieve the Duke of Edinburgh Gold award, Jordan helped at local Beaver and Cubs meetings and organised a fundraising event in Slaithwaite.
