Jaca Queen shows another talent
KATIE Hirst has already taken home the title of Jacaranda Queen, and now she is up for Trainee of the Year.
The Grafton resident works at the Rural Lands Protection Board, through her position with North Coast Group Training.
Katie's trainer and manager Neville Collins said Katie had exceptional skills in dealing with customers, was mature in her approach to her work and was consistently achieving high quality work outcomes.
"With her duties as the reigning Jacaranda Queen, she has been a wonderful ambassador for the Grafton district and for the Grafton office of the Rural Lands Protection Board," he said.
Katie's on-the-job trainer Genette Davis praised Katie's focus, dedication and commitment to achieving her traineeship goals.
As part of her training, Katie has completed the Business Administration Certificate III traineeship with TAFE North Coast Institute ? a course in which her teacher said she was always willing to 'go the extra mile'.
Nominations for the awards, to be held in Coffs Harbour on July 14, have been gained from apprentices and trainees from Taree to the Queensland border.
The winner will represent the North Coast at the State Training Awards to be held in Sydney later this year.
