Our lifeguard of the year
NORTHERN Region Lifeguard Co-ordinator Scott McCartney has been named Lifeguard of the Year at the Surf Life Saving Australia Awards of Excellence in Sydney.
Scott is responsible for the Australian Lifeguard Service operations from the Tweed Shire down to Nambucca Shire and takes pride in knowing the standard of his lifeguards is first-class.
Scott said that he was thrilled and honoured to receive the award.
"I am very happy to have won the Australian Lifeguard of the Year award, but I couldn't have done it without such a great lifeguard team in the Far North Coast and North Coast areas," he said.
This award adds to Scott's achievement earlier in the year when he received the title of NSW Lifeguard of the Year.
