Western Australia Volunteers: Hall of Fame

At the 2017 Regional medal ceremony in Western Australia late last year, State Manager Fiona Johnson recognised several people within the WorldSkills Australia volunteer community by inducting them into the Hall of Fame.

WorldSkills Australia – Western Australia initiated the Hall of Fame in 2013 as a way to recognise the tireless efforts made by WorldSkills convenors and trainers at the 2013 WA Medal Ceremony.

Western Australia State Manager Fiona Johnston says, ‘We aim to acknowledge long-serving champions of the initiative, people who have a solid history (10 yrs +) of involvement and who consistently go above and beyond. This can be, for example, by involvement in several volunteer roles, acting as a ‘cluster’ convener or assisting us in other ways.’
