Western Bulldog Leadership Program participants graduate

Six Ararat students graduated from the Western Bulldogs Leadership Program in front of family and friends on Monday night at the Alexandra Community Center. The program has been running since April after an application process in February/March.

Ararat College’s Holly McAdie and Natasha Ferguson participated and are very happy with how it has helped them develop their leadership skills, create new friends and become all-round better people.

Holly was awarded the ‘You Inspire Me’ award on Monday night as voted by the other participants. She received a Jason Johannisen bobblehead and a trophy for the achievement of being the most inspiring in the group.

“I have really enjoyed the program and I’m so grateful for the award. It has been so fun to work with the other participants and I hope the others have had as much fun as I have”, Holly said.

“The program is an amazing opportunity and anyone interested in building their leadership skills should seriously consider applying. The program has no cost and is a really effective way to get to know yourself as a leader.”

Marian College students Jack Cameron, Max Willmott and Sam Cairns also participated in the program.
