LESMAHAGOW High School Dux Jordan Martin has spoken of his delight at receiving the prestigious award. Jordan (16) pipped Andrew Martin and two others to the title in a very close race for the Dux.
However, Jordan, who is looking to study geophysics at university, was just pleased to win the award.
He said: “It’s a very big honour for me. I know the race was very tight and there were only a couple of points that separated four people. I know my mum and dad were really pleased for me.”
The Gazette this week features the Dux and Proxime Accesit winners – as well as all the other school prize winners – from Lesmahagow, Lanark, Carluke and Biggar High Schools. So don’t miss it!
