The 2020 USU New Gen Committee Apprentice / Trainee of the Year has been announced – Samantha Street – Trainee Biosecurity Officer from Forbes Shire Council.

Samantha has been recognised not just for her outstanding application to her traineeship but also for being an outstanding young Union member. Information gathered by her nominators truly supports Samantha’s nomination and recognition. Please see the following direct quotes from the nomination:

“Sam is an outstanding example of an achiever – she has grasped her role with flair; has been a committed member of the USU team here in Forbes and I believe a worthy nominee for Trainee of the Year 2020”

“It was a huge move for Sam to relocate from her home City of Newcastle to join our Council, but she straight away made herself known and assisting community groups volunteering her services. Sam’s sunny personality also makes her a popular work colleague and she puts 100% in all that she does.”

“Sam is respected by the farming community when dealing with them, and her fellow employees.”

On behalf of the New Gen Committee, the USU certainly congratulates and recognises Samantha as a very worthy recipient of this prestigious award.
