Hollie recognised with Youth Award
We were very proud that Hollie Taggart, our Opportunity Hub trainee, was the recipient of the Youth Award for the Northern Region at the NSWALC Statewide Conference in mid-November.
Hollie commenced her administration traineeship with the Tamworth LALC in March 2017 as a Year 10 graduate, and went on to complete her Cert II in Business in her first 9 months and then commence a Cert III in Community Services. Despite struggling somewhat in the school environment, Hollie has thrived in the workplace and become a valued member of the Opportunity Hub and Tamworth LALC teams.
Hollie was recognised for the steps she has taken over the past 18 months to overcome barriers, commit to achieving excellence for herself and others as part of the Tamworth LALC team, and become a strong young leader who is recognised throughout our community for her potential and strengths.
Through her own efforts, Hollie has made a big change within her own life and inspires other young people to do the same, supporting them and contributing to her community in a positive way. The Northern Region Youth Award was presented by Northern Regional NSWALC Councillor, Charles Lynch.
Congratulations Hollie, we are all so very proud of you!
