Also included is Danni Haebich, who is the recipient of the 2019 Young Citizen of the year award.

Following a sit-down meal, the evening’s two special guest speakers provided those in attendance with their unique perspectives on growing up in the Wimmera region.

Ms. Helen Thomson, manager governance and human services at Hindmarsh Shire Council, who has recently completed a Bachelor of Law and Legal Practice and a Bachelor of Arts detailed her experience of returning home.

Georgia Gelligen, herself a former youth councillor, spoke about growing up in Rainbow and the adjustments she has had to make since moving to Geelong to study a degree in criminology and psychological science.

Cr Ismay said that Council is excited to see what the youth council achieves over the next twelve months.

“We really enjoyed welcoming our new youth councillors to the Hindmarsh Shire Council and we can’t wait to see the outcomes of the initiatives that the 2019 Youth Council comes up with.

“It was also pleasing to see so many family and friends join us in celebrating these young leaders in our community.

“Council is extremely proud of these young people and is eagerly anticipating the initiatives and directions they take as youth leaders within the Shire.”

The evening was also an opportunity to thank Hindmarsh Shire youth and early years’ officer Meg Hall, who is leaving Council after almost 5 years in the role. Ms. Hall was instrumental in the establishment of the youth council and has been a tireless advocate for youth throughout Hindmarsh Shire.
