A Shropshire student scooped a sponsorship boost after impressing architectural design bosses during her work experience placement.
Caitlin Morgan, 16, from Grinshill near Shrewsbury, a student at Wem’s Thomas Adams School, Wem, has her heart set on a career in architecture. She told Craig Marston, director of Ke-design about her plans to travel to Peru on a scheme aimed at improving living standards during her work experience with the company.
Mr Marston said he was so impressed with Caitlin’s efforts, he immediately donated in sponsorship for her Peru trip, saying, “Her enthusiasm is infectious and her whole approach during her time with us was refreshing from one so young. This sort of attitude is deserving of praise and reward and I am delighted to be able to donate towards her Peru trip.”
Caitlin will now be involved in a programme run by Camps International where she will help with environmental projects and installing amenities for some of the oldest civilisations on Earth.
Caitlin said, “I’m really looking forward to my trip and could be involved in building classrooms and community housing, supporting some of the oldest civilisations, the Quechua and Aymara people, with the aim of improving the standard of living.
