Samuel Wilson is a positive witness to the Gospel through his words and actions, and is a role model across the Dewsbury deanery. Samuel welcomes all opportunities including training Altar Servers, leading Worship music and reads in school and the parishes, just a few examples to demonstrate his leadership and excellent communication skills to all ages on a daily basis. Samuel has embraced the opportunity to co-ordinate mission teams delivering assemblies to all year groups for CAFOD, Aid to The Church in Need and Missio.
As a trained anti-bullying ambassador he is always very supportive of his peers, delivering assemblies to each year group during anti-bullying week and has helping Year 7s move from primary school into high school. He carries out all these responsibilities and more with cheerfulness and purpose while displaying a maturity beyond his years. The chaplain who nominated him said “Samuel stands out from the crowd. Being recognised would further strengthen Samuel’s commitment and would be of great pride to his very supportive family”.
