Tracy-Lee Sydney of Kip McGrath Bluff & Umhlanga Wins UWA Achiever of 2017 Title
Tracy-Lee Sydney of Kip McGrath Bluff & Umhlanga was named the UWA Achiever of the Year 2017 at an event held at the Gateway Hotel, Umhlanga, on 1 December 2017. Tracy-Lee was placed first out of a total of 13 applicants in the businesswomen’s competition. Runners up were Claudette Lingenfelder of Beauty Beyond by Claudette (second) and Daniyel Berry of Style Me Image Consulting (third).
Tracy-Lee successfully runs her business with passion and enthusiasm. She says her inspiration comes from her students, from their pride in showing her the increase in their marks, from their eagerness to attend class knowing how much help and support they are receiving. She has a passion about education and service. She feels that it's not only the children that need help and guidance, but the parents as well. Support on both levels is extremely important to her.
From the moment students walk into my centres there is a clear message given to them; ‘this is a place where I can learn and this is a place where it is fun to learn. I can do it!’
The UWA Awards applicants were judged based on various criteria including: any recognition received for outstanding entrepreneurship, innovation or promotion over the past 12 months; personal social responsibility activities over the past 12 months; motivation for inspiration and drive; and how the applicant contributed to UWA.
