Congratulations to four Whitsunday Regional Council apprentices for their success in winning ‘Apprentice of the Year’ in their respective categories at the TORGAS Awards held in Townsville on Friday.
Awards for Most Outstanding 2nd Year Engineering Apprentice and 2nd Year Construction Apprentice were presented to Proserpine based Jack Henderson and Cadell Schlenner respectively while the Most Outstanding 3rd Year Automotive Apprentice and 3rd Year Engineering Apprentice awards were presented to Bevin Querro and Brodie Malone, both based in Bowen.
Mayor Andrew Willcox congratulated the apprentices on their awards which are presented to people who display a strong work ethic and conscientious attitude to their work.
“All of our apprentices have demonstrated commitment to learning their trade and have done so with great enthusiasm,” Mayor Willcox said.
“I’m extremely proud of them, it’s encouraging to see young people making the most of the opportunity to build a career for themselves and Whitsunday Regional Council is pleased to be able to provide the platform for them to do that.”
“I would also like to congratulate the apprentices who received a nomination but were unsuccessful on the night; you should be proud of your nomination and your efforts in our organisation are appreciated.”
