Huntcliff School's former Head Boy, Alex Noakes, has been elected as the new Young Mayor for North Lincolnshire.
Alex, who held the position of Head Boy during the 2012/13 school year, was elected on Friday 18 October during a ceremony at the Civic Centre in Scunthorpe. Alex beat off stiff competition from six other candidates, including one of Huntcliff's current year 11 students, to claim the title with 1,228 votes.
Students from secondary schools across North Lincolnshire voted in the elections, with 4,764 votes being cast in total.
We'd like to wish Alex all the best in his new role. We're sure he will do the job excellently and continue Huntcliff's ethos of encouraging young people to take on leadership roles and raise the aspirations of those around them.
Well done Alex!
