Member for Swan Hill, Peter Walsh, today attended Sea Lake’s Tyrrell College whole school assembly to present special recognition certificates to three local students.
The certificates were the Young Victorian Certificate of Recognition awards which acknowledge the significant role the recipients play in their local community.
Tameeka Staden, Bridget Noonan and Ashlen Wright were all recognised during the presentation ceremony.
“I am constantly impressed by the willingness of our young people to volunteer their time and efforts in a variety of activities across their communities,” Mr Walsh said.
“Tameeka, Bridget and Ashlen were all nominated to receive the awards because of their selfless and willingness to contribute to programs throughout the community and, in particular, to programs involving other young people.”
Tameeka is the current Tyrrell College School Captain and President of the Sea Lake Youth Group. She is also involved in junior tennis coaching, as a mentor in the After School Program, has been a volunteer for Meals on Wheels, was awarded the Paula Sutton Memorial Award for club service to the Sea Lake / Nandaly Netball Club and last year was the recipient of a Melbourne University Kwong Lee Dow Scholarship.
Bridget has provided major leadership in ensuring the continuation of the local MILO cricket program, volunteered as a junior tennis coach, has been a Meals on Wheels volunteer, is a past President of the Sea Lake Youth Group, is a local netball club volunteer and is a member of the group of students working under the Community Leadership Industry Program constructing seating at Green Lake.
Ashlen co-ordinates and manages the Under 16 tennis in Sea Lake, is a Youth Group member, a volunteer with the Woomelang Netball Club and was instrumental in Tyrrell College’s NAB Schools First campaign which resulted in the College winning the National Award for its innovative Agricultural Program.
“These girls are to be commended for their willingness to volunteer their time and efforts and are a fine example of the spirit and capacity of the youth of our region,” Mr Walsh said.
