Award goes to young ‘high achiever’

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

DAL­LARNIL State School Year 7 stu­dent Grace Sar­gent has been awarded the 2012 Ea­ton Giles Me­mo­rial Award.

She has been de­scribed as a won­der­ful role model for fel­low stu­dents.

Her prin­ci­pal, An­drea Kelly, said ev­ery­thing Grace did was done with pride and to the best of her abil­ity.

“She has al­ways been very sup­port­ive of all school ac­tiv­i­ties and par­tic­i­pates in our fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties,” she said.

“Grace is a high-achiev­ing stu­dent in her class and tries her best in all she un­der­takes.

“She is a sup­port­ive, friendly and car­ing stu­dent who al­ways gives her best.

“Her work is al­ways beau­ti­fully pre­sented.

“Her fo­cus is a credit to her and she will suc­ceed in all she does, sim­ply be­cause she does not give up or be­come frus­trat- ed. Her na­ture is one of re­spect and ap­pre­ci­a­tion.”

The award is given an­nu­ally by the Biggen­den Lions Club in me­mory of char­ter mem­ber and pres­i­dent at the time of his death on April 3, 2006.

Club pres­i­dent Rose Ross de­scribed Ea­ton as a spe­cial per­son with a spe­cial heart and a love of ser­vice to the Biggen­den com­mu­nity.

“Ea­ton val­ued ed­u­ca­tion, even though his for­mal ed­u­ca­tion con­cluded at 13 years of age in Biggen­den,” she said.

“Through­out his life he en­joyed learn­ing new things and adapted his think­ing to chang­ing things. He was an ac­tive and in­formed cit­i­zen who gave so much to make the com­mu­nity a bet­ter place.

“Ea­ton left a legacy that is en­dur­ing, pow­er­ful and cen­tred on com­mu­nity ser­vice and strength.”

GREAT HON­OUR: Dal­larnil State School Year 7 stu­dent Grace Sar­gent was awarded the Ea­ton Giles Me­mo­rial Award.
