It gives us great pleasure to announce the winner of the Kennelly Constructions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Achievement Award, as well as the 2021 Queensland Young Achiever of the Year: Kyle Ryan!
This award recognises the passionate and dedicated young Indigenous people, who are strong role models and are making a real difference.
Kyle Ryan’s work with the Inala Wangarra Board supporting local Indigenous people and events to promote cultural practices and providing support for juvenile offenders has done a great deal of good for our community.
