Last week Enable New Zealand’s Rebeka Adamson was awarded the Doreen Smart National Scholarship by the Association of Administrative Professionals New Zealand (AAPNZ)
Created to recognise the Association’s founder, the scholarship was awarded at the Globe Theatre, Palmerston North at a function to mark Administrative Professionals Day. The prize, valued at $1000, is awarded for learning opportunities in office administration and/or business management areas, and can be put towards study for a qualification, a training programme or specific work experience.
National President of AAPNZ, Wendy Rapana, noted on behalf of the adjudicating panel that “Rebeka seemed dedicated to transforming herself and her career, and that her proactive approach to development networking and progression in administration as a profession, certainly caught their attention.”’
Mrs Adamson, an Associate Member of AAPNZ, currently works as a Personal Assistant at Enable New Zealand in Palmerston North, where she has been employed since 2010.
Enable New Zealand General Manager, Scott Ambridge said that he is very pleased to see Rebeka’s hard work recognised.
He said: “At Enable New Zealand we pride ourselves on having a great team. Rebeka has shown that she is dedicated to the organisation, and we are thrilled that she has been recognised in this way. We look forward to supporting Rebeka as she uses this scholarship to pursue further studies.”
