Youth award for Hopetoun nurse

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hopetoun en­rolled nurse Stacey Daly has added an­other string to her bow af­ter winning a youth award.

Yar­ri­ambi­ack Shire, its Youth Ac­tion Coun­cil and the State Govern­ment have recog­nised Stacey for her achieve­ments in health and well­be­ing.

Yar­ri­ambi­ack Shire coun­cil­lors Helen Bal­len­tine and Shane Roberts pre­sented Stacey with her award.

The ac­co­lade comes af­ter Stacey was recog­nised late last year by the Aus­tralian Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery Fed­er­a­tion for her achieve­ments as a stu­dent nurse.

Stacey re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate and a $200 cheque from the fed­er­a­tion for winning the 2016 Stu­dent Nurse Award at Swan Hill’s Sun­raysia In­sti­tute of TAFE.

The Rural North­west Health nurse said she was hum­bled to re­ceive the award.

“It was sur­pris­ing and flat­ter­ing to re­ceive this award be­cause our shire has many great young peo­ple who are achiev­ing won­der­ful things,” Stacey said.

“I’d doubt any of us do what we do to win awards, but it’s great to be recog­nised.

“I love my job at the Hopetoun cam­pus so this is ic­ing on the cake.”
