Corowa student Esther Jackel has been honoured for her academic achievement and work ethic at the 2018 TAFE NSW Riverina Excellence Awards in Wagga Wagga recently.
Ms Jackel, who completed a Certificate III in Business Administration at TAFE NSW Corowa in 2017, was announced as the winner of the prestigious Business Administration Excellence Award at a gala awards ceremony at Elements at the Gardens.
Ms Jackel also received the Campus Outstanding Achievement Award for the Corowa campus.
TAFE NSW Regional General Manager Kerry Penton commended the winners for setting a benchmark in their chosen areas of study and helping inspire other students to follow suit.
“These awards recognise our most passionate, industrious and skilful students, and the fact teachers are the ones who nominate the students makes it even more special,” Ms Penton said.
“I have no doubt these students will go on to forge highly successful careers and will be wonderful ambassadors for TAFE NSW.”
Ms Penton said the awards exemplified TAFE NSW’s commitment to training the workforce leaders of tomorrow.
“TAFE NSW is proud to equip students with practical skills and work experience so they’re ready to hit the ground running in their chosen field.
“It’s very gratifying for TAFE NSW staff to watch these students grow and transform their lives through education.”
