Congratulations to our very own Deputy Principal Ron Kelly who was nominated and received the Nelson City Council Eelco Boswijk Civic Award for Leadership.
This award recognising an individual in the business or education fields who has gone above and beyond to show leadership and giving back to the community, while educating and encouraging others to do the same.
Winner: Ron Kelly
Ron stands out as being an employee who goes way beyond his job. As a Deputy Principal at Nelson College, his job can involve dealing with the ‘not so positive side’ of student behavioural issues. Ron treats these boys with firmness and respect.
Ron’s recent ex-curricular work at the college involves the Maori carving he has done for the Whanau building, Te Ara Poutama.
Congratulations to all of the winners and everyone who was nominated.
The triennial awards recognise outstanding community service, with a particular focus on individuals or groups who are helping us achieve our vision that Nelson is the Smart Little City: He tāone tōrire a Whakatū.
