Pindan’s Tristan Little was awarded as the Master Builder’s Association’s Mid-West Indigenous Apprentice of the Year at their recent awards ceremony.
Jerome Browne, Branch Manager (Geraldton – Mid-West Gascoyne Region), said the award was a wonderful result, especially considering Tristan is only a second year apprentice.
“It is wonderful to have Tristan’s hard work and dedication recognised in this way and we are extremely proud of him,” he said.
As a second year apprentice Tristan has surpassed our expectations and not only demonstrates great trade skills, but a high level of work ethic and is a great team memberJerome Browne
Tristan will complete his apprenticeship in 2021 and said as an Indigenous Australian his apprenticeship was very important to him.
Winning the award is a great honour. I see myself as a strong role model in the community for other young Indigenous Australians to show them they can achieve anything if they put their minds and efforts into it like I haveTristan Little
