An Engineering Mechanical Trade Apprentice from Moss Vale has been awarded " Apprentice of the Year " at the 1300apprentice awards.
Nathan Crawshaw, travelled all the way from Moss Vale to Ultimo Tafe, often twice a week to complete his TAFE component, along with several additional courses he did of his own accord to enhance his career.
At the same, he also got married and renovated his first home.
Nathan will also be nominated for next year's Regional Training Awards night held in Wollongong.
It's hoped he'll then make it to the state level.
