Bass Coast Shire Council’s brightest young leaders were recognised at the Bass Coast Young Leaders Program awards presentation last Tuesday night at Silverwater Resort in San Remo.
The 2015 Leaders received their Awards from Mayor, Cr Kimberley Brown, with Young Leaders announced from all 13 participating Bass Coast schools.
Cr Brown said it was a great achievement for the students, who will now have the opportunity to participate in Council and community events and activities throughout the year.
“The purpose of Council’s Bass Coast Young Leaders Program is to foster young leaders within Bass Coast and to recognise students who display leadership qualities, such as respect, responsibility and teamwork,” Cr Brown said.
“We have some outstanding young people who show great potential in our community and I was honoured to present the 2015 Bass Coast Young Leaders with their awards.
“On behalf of Council, I congratulate our Young Leaders on their awards and I’m looking forward to seeing what these students achieve not only this year, but in years to come.”
Each Young Leader received a certificate, a presentation pack and Young Leader badge, as well as a $200 scholarship from Council to go towards their education expenses.
