Sonya takes out tourism award

RAINBOW Bay resident Sonya Mroz is putting Tweed on the tourism map.

The Tweed Endeavour Cruises marketing executive was awarded the 2009 Len Taylor Young Australian Tourism Export Council award for Excellence last week.

It was presented to her by ATEC chairman John King at their annual Symposium inbound tourism conference held in Darwin.

ATEC Managing Director Matt Hingerty said the award is a fitting recognition both for Sonya’s loyal, committed and hardworking qualities as well as her extra-curricular education.

"Sonya is a wonderful example of what motivated young people can achieve in the tourism industry in a relatively short time," Mr Hingerty said.

"There were a number of excellent candidates for this award, but Sonya stood out," Mr Hingerty said.
