An Annaclone teenager, a student at St Colman’s College Newry, has been awarded a prestigious engineering scholarship.

Declan Loy along with fellow A Level pupil Colum Mc Nally (Newry) were each given £600 as part of the Arkwright Engineering Scholarship which identifies them as some of the leading engineers of the future.

St. Colman’s College will also receive £800. The Scholarships are respected by leading universities and industrial companies and are supported by top engineering employers and organisations such as Rolls-Royce, and BAE Systems.

Colum and Declan had to successfully complete a rigorous selection process consisting of a detailed application form, a two-hour aptitude exam and an interview hosted at a top engineering university.

Both pupils will be formally presented with their scholarships at a prestigious ceremony supported by The Institution of Engineering and Technology later in the year. Dr Martin Thomas, National Director of the Arkwright Scholarships Trust said: “I am delighted to see these Design and Technology students from St. Colman’s College secure this prestigious accolade.”
