THE ded­i­ca­tion and hard work of a num­ber of res­i­dents has been ac­knowl­edged at a cer­e­mony held by TAFE Queens­land in Roma on Wed­nes­day.

Twenty stu­dents were awarded for com­ple­tion or near com­ple­tion of their Cer­tifi­cate and Diploma qual­i­fi­ca­tions across sev­eral ar­eas in­clud­ing con­struc­tion, car­pen­try, early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion and care, ru­ral op­er­a­tions, in­di­vid­ual sup­port, and train­ing and as­sess­ment.

They will now en­ter the com­mu­nity armed with their new found knowl­edge, pro­vid­ing ser­vices to the wider re­gion.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to see so many of you here. Your hard work has paid off and we’re sure that this will only help you suc­ceed in your cho­sen fields in the fu­ture,” said Mrs But­ler.

Coun­cil­lor Tyson Golder, Mayor of Mara­noa Re­gional Coun­cil, along with Jenni But­ler pre­sented cer­tifi­cates to the stu­dents.

Camille John­son, CEO of Golden West Em­ploy­ment Ser­vices spoke to the grad­u­ates about the im­por­tance of recog­nis­ing and mak­ing the most of the op­por­tu­ni­ties that arise in their ca­reers.
