MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has congratulated Inverell High School Year 12 student Hannah Worsley on receiving a prestigious award this week from NSW Education Minister Adrian Piccoli in recognition of her outstanding achievements and contribution to public education.

Mr Marshall said Hannah was one of only 33 Year 12 students from across NSW to be presented with a Minister’s Award for Excellence in Student Achievement at the 2015 NSW Education Minister’s and Secretary’s Awards during a ceremony at Parliament House on Tuesday.

“These awards recognise the achievements of outstanding teachers and students in NSW – people who exhibit the highest standards in our public education system,” Mr Marshall said.

“It’s fantastic to see Hannah receive this recognition for her exceptional achievements as a student and a leader.”

Mr Marshall said those achievements included success in the Lions Youth of the Year competition this year, where Hannah was the NSW winner and national public speaking champion, representing Northern Tablelands twice in the YMCA NSW Youth Parliament, winning the Rotary District 9650 public speaking competition, attending the National Youth Science Forum and winning last year’s inaugural Country to Canberra Essay Competition.

He said that Hannah also recently returned from London where she represented Australia at the International Youth Science Forum.

“Hannah is a very impressive young woman and I’ve been proud to publicly laud her achievements on number of occasions in Parliament,” Mr Marshall said.

“For someone still so young, she already has an amazing record of achievements, coupled with a mature outlook and civic-minded attitude.

“Hannah thoroughly deserves this latest accolade and I wish her every success in the upcoming HSC exams and for her future, which I confidently predict will be remarkable.”
