“All’s Well That Ends Welsh,” New Era, May 2009, 38
Adam Croucher, a priest in the Swansea Ward, Swansea Wales Stake, was named the first recipient of the Children’s University Gold Award from the Youth University, Swansea. The Children’s University was established by the government of Wales to reward out-of-school learning by young people ages 5 to 19.
To receive the award, Adam, who has from infancy battled illness and the aftereffects of a brain-tumor surgery, put in more than 600 hours of volunteer work at the Egypt Center at Swansea University, where he makes sure the museum’s artifacts are in good condition and explains what they are to visitors.
Adam serves as ward organist, loves music, and enjoys playing a variety of instruments, from trombone to piano. He plans to study music and music technology.
