Enabling Good Lives Waikato Leadership Group member Glen Terry has been presented with a 30 under 30 award for outstanding achievement made by a young Hamiltonian.
The 30 under 30 project is a joint venture between the Hamilton City Council and the Youth Council Advisory Panel. It profiles 30 young Hamilton residents, under the age of 30, whose achievements in academic, athletic, artistic or community endeavour have been identified as significant and successful. “These people have a high level of success and inspire other young people” said Julie Hardaker, Mayor of Hamilton.
Glen, who has been identified as a “future leader” by the Youth Council Advisory Panel said the award “means that I can be an awesome leader and encourage others to be leaders as well”.
Glen is also a national advisor to the Health and Disability Commission and has been part of a project highlighting awareness about students who have learning disability to high schools and student teachers.
