Jol receives Noteworthy Award and the inaugural Michele Castagna Medal
On December 5th, 2016 Jol was awarded two prestigious awards by the Mayor of Alice Springs. These were for his continued volunteer community services. The first award was the 'Noteworthy Award' given to a person who has made a noteworthy contribution to the community while the second, the inaugural Michele Castagna Medal, recognises community activity by a person with a disability.
"The Alice Springs Mayoral Awards are celebrated in line with IDPwD to highlight the contributions made by individuals with disability and by individuals for disability communities. The aim of the Alice Springs Mayoral Awards is to highlight, acknowledge and give thanks to the people in the community who ‘make a difference’ – demonstrated either in their own lives or through their actions and commitment to others."
