Miliana Naicori has been named the Riverina Vocational Education and Training in Schools Student of the Year.
The Finley High School student and Finley RS Club employee will now contest the state awards in Sydney next month.
Miliana’s regional achievement was celebrated at the annual Riverina Regional Training gala awards ceremony in Wagga last week.
As one of 272 school based trainees across the region, Miliana said she was proud to win the award.
‘‘I’m pretty rapt about it,’’ she said.
‘‘I was excited to receive the nomination and then to win the award. I received $100 for being a finalist with a framed certificate.
‘‘At the end of night during the three course meal, they announced I was the winner of my category and I received another framed certificate and $500.
‘‘It was great the venue and an excellent night at Wagga.’’
Miliana said she will use her prizemoney to further her training, particularly on her Responsible Service of Alcohol and Responsible Service of Gambling certificates and her provisional license.
Miliana has completed Certificate II in Business through the Murray Mallee Training in Deniliquin.
Her VET studies include one day off school to work in reception at the Finley RS Club each week.
She has been working at the club for more than a year and was nominated for the training awards by Finley RS employee Sharon Parmley.
‘‘She is very friendly and takes her own initiative and we really think she’s great – I think it’s very well deserved,’’ said Ms Parmley.
‘‘Finley RS office manager Lita Gray and I were able to attend the awards, it was a very nice night.
‘‘Miliana did extremely well, and we are very pleased for her.’’
State award finalists, including Miliana, will be interviewed by an expert panel in Sydney on July 30.
