Emergency service cadet corps attracts recognition
The Tom Price Emergency Services Cadet Corps has yet again been recognised as a finalist in more awards for its dedicated service to the Tom Price and Paraburdoo communities.
The unit was a semifinalist in the Prime Super community group of the year as part of the WA regional and community achievement awards.
Earlier in the year, it ranked highly as a semifinalist for the RAC West Australian Community Volunteer Organisation of the Year, which aims to acknowledge volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution and have positively impacted the lives of others and their community.
Tom Price cadet corps leader Nicole Kelly said the group had shown excellent leadership and support of others.
“The cadet unit relies heavily on instructors from Tom Price Senior High School,” she shared.
Ms Kelly said the group had demonstrated innovative ways to achieve beyond of what was expected of them.
The cadet corps is backed by miner Rio Tinto, which the team thanked for its support.
