Chelsea Gibson, a 6th year student in Cashel Community School has been selected by the Cashel Lions Club to progress to the District Finals of its annual Young Ambassador Youth Award.
The scheme rewards and supports youth activity in local communities.
Chelsea was presented with a shield in recognition of her commitment to the Order of Malta and the local Youth Club. She has been a volunteer with the Order of Malta for nine years; she trains cadets, she is regularly on duty with the Order at local and national events and she also works to provide community care for the elderly.
In addition Chelsea is a junior leader in the town’s youth club. She helps to organise and facilitate summer camps which benefit younger children.
All of this is accomplished while managing the demands of preparing to sit her Leaving Certificate next June. Chelsea hopes to study nursing. We wish her well in the District Finals.
