Trainees awarded for hard effort

TRAINEES, apprentices and their employers from across the region gathered on Friday night for Northern Rivers Group Training’s annual awards night in Lismore.

It was hosted by Mark Sweet, the organisation’s regional manager, and aimed to recognise the commitment, dedication and hard work of apprentices, trainees and host employers.

The highly sought-afterApprentice of the Year Award was shared by Daniel Ivanusa and Brady Creighton.

Other award winners included Peter Northfield (Outstanding Achievement); Aimmee Waddell (Indigenous Apprentice of the Year) and Graham Leeson (Host Employer of the Year).

The night’s guest speaker was Michael Crossland, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system, when he was just a baby. But he defied the odds and went on to play representative baseball in Australia and America.

State Lismore MP Thomas George was also on hand to present some of the awards.
