Posted on 07th May 2013 | GeneralNews

A Year 13 Business Studies student from St. Mary’s Grammar School, Magherafelt has been awarded a unique work placement with financial services corporation, Morgan Stanley.   

Megan Johnston will join a select group of young people from Northern Ireland to spend three days in the company’s headquarters in London’s Canary Wharf as part of an initiative managed by Morgan Stanley, in association with Co-operation Ireland and the Woman’s Fund for Northern Ireland. The initiative is designed to enhance Co-operation Ireland’s focus on promoting youth leadership and community peace-building, while at the same time providing young people with an interest in corporate banking and the financial services sector with valuable careers insight and experience. Speaking of Megan’s success, Mrs McKeever, Head of Business Studies, commented: "I am thrilled that Megan has secured this unique work placement opportunity with Morgan Stanley. Given the level of interest and competition associated with this initiative, it is to Megan’s credit that she has been chosen as one of the participants. I know that she will benefit hugely from the experience and I have no doubt that she will prove to be an impressive member of the group.”
