Evan is multi-talented and contributes in many different ways to his community: He is an active member of Aber Kayakers, where he has paddled for the last 5 years. He enjoys teaching and recently gained his level One Coach qualification. He has an aptitude for communicating with and encouraging younger people, as well as his peers. He uses these skills in the local Army Cadet Force, where he has risen to the rank of Sergeant. One of his main responsibilities is training the younger cadets. He co-leads the Aberystwyth Youth Brass Band on Cornet and the conductor told me this current band has been the best team-workers he has had. He played trumpet in the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain and this year joined the National Youth Brass Band of Wales. Evan was awarded 'A Young First Aider of the Year 2008' after his prompt and effective response to a serious car accident.
