She was chosen to receive the honour for her leadership skills and entrepreneurial characteristics demonstrated across a range of activities.

These included working on a Young Enterprise team which set up a successful business recycling old candles and jars into gifts to be sold at Christmas events and passing the Young Enterprise Scotland exam with Merit.

Carla, who lives in Stirling, said: “I enjoyed being involved in all the enterprise activities and couldn’t believe it when I was told I’d won the award.

“I was really chuffed, and it was extra special because it was the first one to be given out and I got to take a small trophy home in addition to the one which goes in the cabinet at school.”

MRES Managing Director Moray Robertson, a former Wallace High pupil, presented the honour to Carla during a ceremony at the school.

He said: “We’re pleased to have this opportunity to reward students who are forward thinkers and hope this annual trophy will provide inspiration for Wallace High pupils.

“It’s great to be able to give something back to the local community and I was delighted to present Carla with the award and recognise her hard work.”

Wallace High School Depute Head Donna Harris said: “Carla is a worthy first recipient of the Moray Robertson Electrical Services Award for Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

 “She has shown great leadership skills and strength of character across a range of entrepreneurial activities.

“From being a guiding force in a Young Enterprise Scotland company to fundraising for the Lesotho Community Partnership and ultimately passing the Young Enterprise exam at Strathclyde Business School with merit, Carla has demonstrated an impressive work ethic as well as creativity and commitment.

Headteacher Scott Pennock said: “We are grateful to Moray Robertson Electrical Services for sponsoring an award which recognises entrepreneurship as part of our Senior Awards.

 “We work very hard at Wallace High to promote Developing the Young Workforce across our curriculum.

 “An award such as this is especially fitting as it comes from a parent and former pupil of the school who has gone on to successfully build a business and exemplify the very skills and standards this award seeks to celebrate.”
