Recognizing Excellence: Open Nominations for Waipukurau Rotary Young Employee of the Year 2023


The Waipukurau Rotary Young Employee of the Year 2023 is an esteemed award that seeks to recognize and applaud the outstanding efforts of young professionals who make a difference in their workplaces. 

"Winning this award made me realize my potential and that my hard work is being noticed by those around me. My passion is young people, and my job is already so rewarding, but to have my co-workers and Rotary members acknowledge me truly helped grow my self-confidence. Winning this award, I was able to meet many amazing young adults through RYLA, which I recommend everyone should do; it is a great opportunity. Shout out to Epic Ministries, my organization, for nominating me." - Ari Henson, 2022 Winner 

The recognition from co-workers and members of the Rotary not only boosted Ari's self-confidence but also highlighted the value of fostering a culture of appreciation and support within the workplace. The award serves as a reminder that recognizing the efforts of young employees can lead to a more positive and productive work environment, benefiting both individuals and the organizations they contribute to. 

Ari's mention of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program showcases the broader impact of the award beyond the immediate accolade. The opportunity to connect with other outstanding young adults through RYLA exemplifies the interconnectedness of recognition and community engagement. It underlines how the award creates a network of driven individuals who inspire each other and contribute to the growth of the community. 

Jane Clouston, Director of Vocational and Youth, Waipukurau Rotary had this to say about last year's nominees. We have been very encouraged with the high standard of our Young employees this Year.Their personal stories, journeys and backgrounds have impacted and equipped them in a positive way. We are all so proud of the young people of CHB.

By celebrating the remarkable young talents and their unique journeys, we contribute to the enrichment of our community and pave the way for a future that thrives on unity, support, and shared success.
