Ray Banks, President of KYDS, once again presented the President’s Highest Achiever Award at the KYDS BBQ and after show party on Sunday 3rd July.

Ray personally chooses the winner of the award, after observing the rehearsal process for each KYDS production and identifying who, in his opinion, has achieved the most throughout the rehearsal process.

Ben Collins, who played Prince Eric, was chosen as the President’s Highest Achiever for the Society’s most recent production of The Little Mermaid. Ray said:

“I considered Ben to be the Highest Achiever this time for the extra level he managed to achieve for his performance. Ben’s singing hit a new high – better than he has ever done before. Also the overall quality of his acting was elevated to new heights. He well deserved the award.” Ray Banks
