Tourism talent rises to the top

A Kimberley TAFE student has been recognised for her dedication and commitment to tourism, receiving an achievement and encouragement award.

Tiara Lawford, from the Dampier Peninsula, was recently presented with the award by Skal International Broome for showing dedication and commitment to the industry through her work and studies in the past 12 months.

Skal, in association with North Regional TAFE, gives the award each year to a student who is applying themselves in the area of tourism or hospitality and achieving their goals.

Ms Lawford approached Kimberley Group Training last February to be part of the Hospitality, Travel and Tourism Pre-Employment program, which inspired her to pursue a career in tourism.

In May, she secured employment with Willie Creek Pearl Farm as a trainee tour guide.
