The achievements and ambitions of 12 outstanding young Year 13 students were celebrated at the Spirit of Napier Lions Young Achievements Awards recently before an audience which naturally included many very proud parents and families.
It was the seventh year the awards had been staged by the Spirit of Napier Lions and took place at the Municipal Theatre’s Pan Pac Foyer as the traditional Napier City Council venue was not available due to the recent earthquake risk engineering reports which made it off limits.
“This is an event we are proud to be involved with as it is great to be able to show youth in a positive way instead of the negative remarks often associated with the youth of today,” Young Achievers sub-committee member Mary McGhie said.
The driving aim of the now annual awards was to promote the positive influence today’s youth has on our society through acknowledging and promoting their achievements to the wider community.
