Young Achiever of the Year

21/07/2014
School Captain, Kristen Ethell, was named the Overall Young Achiever of the Year at the prestigious Fraser Coast Youth Achievement Awards held on the 27 June.
 The awards, which are organised by the Maryborough Neighbourhood Centre,  are an opportunity for the Fraser Coast community to recognise and showcase the achievements of people aged 12-25 throughout the region in music, sport, cultural endeavours, public speaking, community service, the Arts and academics. 
Kristen, who also won the coveted Academic Achievement Award, thanked her ‘wonderful teachers at Aldridge State High School for their continued efforts in supporting her to achieve her goals’.  She said it was an honour to win the award amongst so many talented and high achievers in the region and was grateful that she has grown up in a community that not only supports the goals of young people, but also provides them with opportunities to give back to their community through fundraising, leadership and service.
The gala event was held at the Brolga Theatre and Convention Centre in Maryborough and was attended by a number of local dignitaries including Fraser Coast Councillors, Mayor, Gerard O’Connell and Ted Sorenson, State Member for Hervey Bay. 
It is fantastic to see Krissy receive recognition for her sheer hard work and the unwavering persistence and commitment she has demonstrated whilst at Aldridge.  We are sure her future will be bright!
