BRIGHT spark Gail Glancy has been named the Adam Smith College Electrical Student of the Year.
Gail (19), an apprentice electrician at R B Grant in Kirkcaldy, was selected from over 60 electrical installation students studying at the Future Skills Centre at Stenton Campus in Glenrothes.
Gail, who has worked for R.B. Grant for two years, said: “I was so pleased to receive this award from the college. It means so much and shows that my hard work is paying off.
“I love working for R.B. Grant and when I complete my apprenticeship in two years I really hope I can stay on with them to continue my trade.”
Gail was presented with her trophy by Philip Ogg, curriculum head at Adam Smith, at a ceremony at R.B. Grant’s premises.
She was also presented with a tool case and gift vouchers by David Grubb, branch manager of Holland House, who is the award sponsor. Holland House is an electrical supply wholesaler based in Kirkcaldy.
Mr Ogg said: “Gail is a high quality student, she meets and exceeds the criteria set for this award and it was a pleasure to visit her workplace to present her with her trophy.”
R B Grant is a family run electrical business which has been operating for 38 years, supplying electricians to a variety of domestic and trade clients.
Managing director Ronnie Grant said: “We’ve been employing Adam Smith apprentices for many years, they’re all excellent and work to a high standard which makes it a pleasure to welcome them to our team to further their training.
“Gail came to us straight from school and fits into the team perfectly. Her work is to an exceptionally high standard and I know she will be an asset to the trade.”
