Wangaratta's Young Citizen of the Year - Jessica Lewis
6 February 2019, Mr McCURDY (Ovens Valley): Congratulations to Jessica Lewis on being named the Rural City of Wangaratta’s Young Citizen of the Year.
Jess is an active and enthusiastic member of the local community, and I have got to know her and her parents very well over the last couple of years.
She has done work experience here at Parliament and she is a highly deserving recipient of this award.
Jess is a former youth counsellor for Wangaratta and is involved in the girl guides and the Lions Club. She is a bright and inspiring young person.
The future of Wangaratta looks bright with young leaders such as Jess, and I wish her all the very best with her upcoming tertiary studies.
