The Jack Ovenden Award

This year saw three finalists for the prestigious Jack Ovenden Award for ‘Outstanding Student of the Year’. The AA once again sponsored award and the 2017 winner was Jake Snaith of the Mansfield Group, who was nominated by Chris Swann MIVR.

Congratulations must also go to the other finalists who were Ronan Kearney of SOS 24hr Recovery, Co. Cork, nominated by Kieran Rice FIVR, and Kieran Archbold of ASK Recovery in the Vale of Glamorgan who was nominated by Mark Hartell FIVR. 

The IVR would like to thank the AA for its continuing support and the Rescue and Recovery Trainers Association (RRTA) who administer the award on behalf of the Institute.
