Congratulations Jack Newton – Livingstone Shire Council’s Young Citizen of the Year!
Soundbridge would like to congratulate Jack Newton, son of our Financial Planner, Richard Newton, on his amazing achievement at being named the Livingstone Shire Council’s Young Citizen of the Year for 2019.
Jack is a long-time member of the Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club, where he started as a Nipper at Under 9. He is now 17 years old, and is a valued patrolling member contributing many hours of community service, and an advocate for Volunteer Surf Lifesaving.
Jack’s highlight for 2019 was the rescue of a man in distress after falling from his surf ski a few kilometres from shore.
Jack shows extraordinary dedication and discipline in juggling training and surf patrol events. He trains 6 days a week, morning and afternoon, on average 25 hours per week. He is dedicated to surf sports and competes in the open age category as well as his U17 age group. He also takes part in ironman events across the state, and took out the U15 Coolangatta Gold.
