Jacaranda Queen gets down to business
JACARANDA Queen 2005 Katie Hurst now can add another title to her portfolio.
At the NSW Training Awards regional presentation, recently in Coffs Harbour, Ms Hurst was named North Coast Trainee of the Year.
Ms Hurst studied the Certificate III in business administration at the TAFE NSW-North Coast Institute's Grafton campus.
The outgoing teenager is employed at the Grafton Rural Lands Protection Board through North Coast Group Training.
She was one of three students who study at the TAFE NSW-North Coast Institute to receive a major award for outstanding results.
Institute acting director Elizabeth McGregor said she was delighted that the students had been recognised for their commitment towards vocational education.
"I look forward to seeing them achieve even greater results in the future," she said.
"I hope they might join us on the stage receiving the State-wide award in September."
Ms Hirst, along with two other students, one from the Coffs Harbour TAFE campus and the other at Wollongbar campus, are short-listed for the NSW state-wide awards.
