It's always sad to see people leave us, but moving on is all a part of growing and developing. So it was with heavy but supportive hearts that we said goodbye to Youth Councillors Michael Chim, Rose Oakley, Secretary Wil Undy and Chairperson Hamish Keown at our December AGM.
Michael, your quest for CYC pens will go on into 2015. Rose, your unerring enthusiasm and ability to offer useful insights will serve you very well. Wil, no one puts together minutes like you, and your ever-cheerful approach can only bring you wins as you head into uni life. Hamish...what would CYC be like without you? Well, we'll have to find out, but safe to say, you've left a permanent mark on the Youth Council landscape in New Zealand and as a young changemaker, there are few more humble.
You've all achieved so much and we're going to miss you heaps. Thank you, and stay in touch through the new alumni network!
You can keep up to date with what we're doing for young people in Christchurch here. Join in the conversation!
