Matt gets achiever nomination
FORMER Derwent Valley Council youth and community participation officer Matt Hill has been named as a state finalist for an accolade at the Tasmanian Community Achiever Awards.
Mr Hill is one of four finalists for the Heather and Christopher Chong Outstanding Achiever Award, which recognises high-achieving individuals who excel in their profession or chosen field of endeavour.
The award pays tribute to talented and dedicated high achievers, in the areas of sport, art, culture, leadership, community involvement, academia, or career.
Mr Hill was nominated for the work he has undertaken in the Derwent Valley region.
He recently left his position at the council after nearly 15 years, but is staying involved in a number of groups in the Derwent Valley.
The winner will be announced at the gala presentation dinner on December 1.
