2014 Steve Hornery Award

WorldSkills Australia (WSA) would like to congratulate 2014 WSA National Auto Electrical competitor, Kane Girard who has been awarded the 2014 Steve Hornery Award.

The award recognises the effort of a WSA National Competitor from NSW who has demonstrated commitment, dedication, compassion and support to their fellow teammates.

Despite facing many challenges over this past year, Kane remained positive and determined to achieve his goals in continuing on his journey to Perth to compete. Kane’s skills prevailed and he walked away from the national competition with a gold medal, a testament to all his hard work, commitment and endless hours of training.

Kane will accept his award on Wednesday 26 November at the 2014 Steve Hornery Award Presentation to be held at TAFE NSW New England Institute at the Futures Training Restaurant, Tamworth Campus.

Congratulations to Kane, an inspirational role model for all young Australians.

The biennial award has been established in honour of Steve Hornery, a much respected teacher and WSA volunteer and mentor. Steve dedicated 28 years to WorldSkills Australia in a range of capacities. During his time as both a teacher and volunteer, Steve was instrumental in the continual development of not only WSA’s core activities, but to also the young people he mentored. As such, this award is a fitting tribute which aims to carry on his legacy.
