TROY Cassar-Daley will retire from his official role as Clarence Valley's first ambassador, with Mayor Richie Williamson to announce the 2012 award recipient at an invitation-only ceremony to be held in Yamba today.

While The Daily Examiner can't reveal who this year's ambassador will be until after the announcement, we can tell you the 2012 ambassador is a well-known sports star who has already achieved great results at a world level.

"I'm very proud of this one," said the 2012 ambassador.

"I think it's a pretty good initiative to not only recognise local talent but also to spread the word that the Clarence Valley is a great place to live or come for a holiday."

The Clarence Valley Ambassador Award recognises the success of former residents who have made significant achievements in their chosen paths.

As ambassador, Troy helped to raise the profile of the Clarence Valley through his networks and in his day-to-day duties.

"Troy is certainly at the top of the Australian country music scene and Clarence Valley is proud to call him their own," Mayor Richie Williamson said.

"With Troy's reputation among the Australian music industry ... along with his many accolades and Grafton roots, Troy fitted the criteria perfectly."
