Stephen has developed into a wonderful young man. Although he is naturally quiet he has achieved many things and helped many people. He has attained his Gold Chief Scout Award and attended the World Jamboree. He has helped as a Volunteer leader with his Scout group, volunteered and worked at the Share Centre in Enniskillen and worked with disabled children. Also he has completed his bronze, silver and gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards, attained Bronze medallion and Award of Merit for Life Saving. He has attained Level 2 in Community Sports leadership, played volleyball for Northern Ireland, and 1st XI hockey for his school and helps coach younger teams. He has been awarded the Elite Athlete status for entrance into University in September. When Stephen left primary school he was a rather timid, quiet child, lacking in confidence in many areas. However sport has become a large part of his life and has changed into the confident, but quiet and humble young man he is today, in fact I would go so far as saying sport has dramatically changed Stephen for the better. He is a fantastic young man. He is my next door neighbour and he is a role model for many younger children. I am very proud to say I have known him and watched him develop into the fine young man he is today for all of his life and thought of him as a torch bearer as soon as heard of the opportunity.
