His citation reads:
Sam Hewitt played Romeo in Romeo and Juliet in the Shakespeare Schools’ Festival last year. He achieved an A for Drama at GCSE level and is an excellent role model for other students as he is hard working, committed and creative. He is an exceptional performer, combining instinct and intelligence and he is now developing directorial skills as he is often to be seen leading the learning in his A level Drama group and in the SSF production of Hamlet at the Phoenix Theatre, Exeter recently where he appeared in the title role.
Sam epitomises everything the Helen Foundation Award represents:- talent, modesty, imagination and an appetite for powerful performance with high expectations of himself at all times. Sam is reflective, a strong leader, an empathic collaborator and he thoroughly deserves the Award this year for his exceptional ability and exciting potential for the future.
Trustees warmly congratulate Sam on his terrific achievement and wish him well for the future.
