That’s whyIllawarra Sports High School principal Raechel McCarthy had little hesitation in nominating the 16-year-old for the Wollongong Local Aboriginal Student of the Year.

And that’s why Member for Wollongong, Noreen Hay on Monday went to the Berkeley school to presentCurtis with the prestigious award.

‘’Curtis has displayed great leadership within his school and among his peers,’’ Ms Hay said.

‘’He is an active participant in the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience Program (AIME) at the University of Wollongong and he encourages his peers to also be involved.

‘’His dedication to the program led to him being chosen by his school as their AIME Ambassador’ for 2016.’’

The Year 10 student was nominated by Ms McCarthy, who saidCurtis had excellent leadership skills and was a leader of students within the school.

The inaugural Local Aboriginal Student of the Year Awards are an opportunity to recognise an Aboriginal student from years 7-10, who is a positive role model to other students and demonstrates leadership in a particular field.

Twenty recipients of the 2016 Local Aboriginal Student of the Year Award from across NSW will now be selected to attend the Emerging Aboriginal Leaders Program during NAIDOC Week in Sydney (July 3-10).

Ms Hay congratulated Curtis on his much deserved award and wished him the best of luck to be selected to attend the Emerging Aboriginal Leaders Program.
