Milsted Langdon opened its regular annual sponsorship of education institution events at Richard Huish College in Taunton on Thursday 7 April when General Practice Manager Mark Wilson awarded its Accounting Prize to 18 year old Paige Lole, who left the college in summer 2015.

Paige has been working on a coveted higher apprenticeship at BT, which she won following a gruelling selection process, and since she started the job she has completed three Chartered Institute of Management Accountants papers and is going from strength to strength.

Paige’s former Accounting teacher, Paula Judge, commented:

“Paige was a determined and creative student. She put maximum effort into every piece of work and always looked for ways to improve, even when gaining higher grades. She could easily have gone to university but chose not to.  Paige will be an asset to BT and will go far in the profession.  The Milsted Langdon prize is a tribute to her excellent attitude and approach, great results in the subject and is a reward for what she has given back to current students.”

Mark Wilson, General Practice Manager at Milsted Langdon, presented Paige with a £100 cheque, and commented: “It is always gratifying to see pupils who excel in secondary education doing well at work – and Paige is very deserving of the Milsted Langdon award. The firm congratulates her and wishes her well for the future.  It is quite possible our paths will cross – and I look forward to working with young people of Paige’s calibre from the local area and beyond.  We are always proud of our relationships with local schools and of our award winners – and, as one of them, Paige is entitled to be very proud of herself.”

The next Milsted Langdon education award will be made on 1 July.
