The Arbroath Herald is proud to announce the worthy recipients of this year’s Rotary Club of Arbroath Citizen of the Year award.

Sheena Glover, a well-known figure on the music scene in Arbroath and further afield, was last night (Thursday) named the 2016 Citizen of the Year at the Meadowbank Inn.

Sheena’s devotion to the furthering of music in our community and her dedication to a long list of local societies makes her a fitting recipient for this year’s award, which is sponsored by the Arbroath Herald.

Sheena has been involved in musical organisations the length and breadth of Angus, taught music in secondary school, ascending to department head at Brechin High School, and also taught music privately.

She has been instrumental in bringing to life wonderful works of music for the people of Arbroath and beyond and this award goes some way to recognising that.

The inaugural Young Citizen of the Year was presented to 14-year-old Morgen Cosgrove.

For one so young, Morgen has amassed an impressive array of achievements.

Last April she raised £936 for her school, Arbroath Academy, when she undertook a sponsored hike along all 96 miles of the West Highland Way.

The money for this went towards the school’s entry into the national competition ‘Rock Challenge’ and Morgen was also heavily involved in the choreography for their show.

On top of this Morgen has completed over 100 hours of voluntary work at the Saltire Centre and also become one of the first draft of the Police Scotland Youth Volunteer scheme in Arbroath which aims to do good work in the community.

The awards were presented by Mike Halley, District Governor of Rotary District 1010 on behalf of the Rotary Club of Arbroath.
