Owen Miller MBE/Paralympian Visit
On Wednesday we had the privilege of Owen Miller visiting Alford Academy. Owen won Gold in the men’s T20 1500m category at the Tokyo Paralympics in September 2021. Owen brought his Gold medal along for pupils to see as well as the MBE he was awarded in June of this year. Owen spent time chatting with two Prince’s Trust Achieve classes, a Nat 5 PE class and an S3 Study & Organisation class. The pupils got to see and hold Owen’s gold medal and his MBE as well as ask any questions they had for him. Thank-you very much to Owen for coming to visit Alford Academy and share his story with some of our pupils. Hopefully the pupils have been inspired to dream big and follow their passions in life.
