Two Glenrothes students have won apprenticeships with Scotland’s largest car dealer after clinching £500 scholarships.

Danielle Scott (24), and 16 year-old Sean McKay (16) were delighted to be awarded the scholarships through Adam Smith Foundation, which is the former college’s charitable trust.

But the motor vehicle students – now studying at the new Fife College which has succeeded Adam Smith – were given a further boost when they got jobs with Arnold Clark.

Its managing director, Eddie Hawthorne, had attended a special presentation at the college’s Future Skills Centre in Glenrothes to present the students with their scholarships.

Eddie and company group personnel manager, Carol Henry, were so impressed with Danielle and Sean that they were both fast tracked for interview with the company and are now looking forward to a promising future.

Said Danielle: “This is like a dream come true for me -I have always had a passion for the automotive industry.”

Sean added: “I am very thankful to both the college and Arnold Clark for this opportunity which will change my life.”

Both students plans to spend their money on equipment.
