A teacher in Aberdeen has been shortlisted for a national award in recognition of his work in equality and the LGBT+ community.
John Naples-Campbell is a Principle Teacher at Dyce Academy and has already been recognised as one of the top ten educational influencers in Scotland by The Times Educational Supplement Scotland.
The Expressive Arts teacher has now been nominated in the Inspiration category in the prestigious Proud Scotland awards, which take place in Glasgow on June 1.
Mr Naples-Campbell, said: “I have never seen myself as ‘inspirational’ and have always seen my job as a passion and a chance to help young people achieve their full potential no matter of their gender, sexuality, race, religion or disability.
“It’s important in today’s world that young people understand equality and know their rights, to understand both how they should be treated and how they should treat others”.
Councillor John Wheeler added: “It’s really wonderful to see John’s tremendous work being recognised at national level once again.
“He really embodies our vision for Aberdeen as a place where everyone can prosper and where fairness underpins our day to day lives.”
