Quotes attributable to Mayor of Hobsons Bay Cr Jonathon Marsden:
“The Inspiring Young Person Awards provide an opportunity to showcase the resilience of young people throughout the last year. Many have been tackling home-schooling and challenging circumstances with employment. I encourage you to nominate a friend, fellow student, or even yourself.
“The young people of Hobsons Bay represent the next generation of leaders for our community; a generation of change-makers, brave thinkers, and can-doers. Here’s to celebrating the contribution they make to our community every single day.”
