Directions trainee wins C.Y. O’Connor Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Student of The Year
Directions Workforce Solutions business trainee Zoe Smith shared top honours for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Student of The Year at the recent 2015 C Y O’Connor Institute student graduation night.
The award which was sponsored by the Shire of Northam and the C Y O’Connor Institute Governing Council was shared with Merika Borlini.
C Y O’Connor Institute managing director John Scott commended both winners for their work ethic and passion for learning.
“To be nominated for an award is a great privilege and to impress the panel enough to warrant a double award is a great achievement”.
“I have been working with Zoe and am so excited and proud of her achievement” said Aboriginal Training and Employment Coordinator Brenda De Atta, who also presented the 2015 Regional Business Student of The Year Award sponsored by Directions.
