Renee Harrison of Wanganui Girls’ College has been named as the winner of the Trustpower Youth Spirit Community Award.

 

The Award was presented at the Trustpower Energy Direct Whanganui District Community Awards tonight (Monday 12 October) at the Whanganui War Memorial Centre.  

 

Run in conjunction with the Trustpower Energy Direct Whanganui District Community Awards, the Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award recognises secondary school students’ service to the school and the community.  The Award is jointly run by Trustpower and the Wanganui District Council.

 

Local high schools were asked to recommend one student to be considered for the Award. To be considered for the Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award students had to have given service to school or community projects, treated others with care and respect and been a good ambassador for the school and the Whanganui region.

 

Finalists for the Award are Kacie Warren from Cullinane College, Alexander Torrie from Wanganui High School and Eliza Maher from Wanganui Collegiate School.

 

Trustpower Community Relations Representative Kathlene Cook says Renee is a talented young woman who instinctively gives her time, talents and experience freely.

 

“Renee is the head girl of Whanganui Girls. This position sees her represent the school at many different events and she is the leading organiser of many school events, liaising with members of the community also.

 

Outside of school, Renee is very busy in the community. She has been a youth councillor on the Wanganui District Council Youth Committee since 2010. Through this involvement she helped organise such events as Picnic in the Park and the Underground Youth Fashion Show.

 

Renee says she is motivated to give her time voluntarily simply to give back to those who gave so much to her – which is incredible”, says Kathlene.

 

For winning the Award, Renee received a trophy, framed certificate and $500 prize money. She also got to make a $250 donation to a community group of her choice.

 

The Trustpower Youth Community Spirit Award was presented at the Trustpower Energy Direct Whanganui District Community Awards, held tonight, Monday 12 October at 6pm at the Whanganui War Memorial Centre.
