Nathan Moulds has been named as the Ryde Citizen of the Year at a ceremony at North Ryde School of Arts Hall today.
A member of the Ryde Salvation Army, Mr Moulds has worked tirelessly to support the residents of the Ivanhoe Estate during a period of transition in 2017.
Mr Moulds also works with local service providers and church communities within the Ryde community to bring about positive social change and assist those in need.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, said Mr Moulds was a very deserving recipient of the Ryde Citizen of the Year award.
“Nathan’s efforts in which he has gone out of his way to help those most in need has been of enormous benefit to people in Ryde community. The kindness and generosity he has shown is commendable and his dedication to bringing about social change within Ryde will help the community in a range of ways,” the Mayor said.
The Young Ryde Citizen of the Year was awarded to Rhett Prado for his work as a student volunteer for the NSW State Emergency Service. Mr Prado also gained a bronze Duke of Edinburgh award in 2017.
“Rhett has shown dedication and commitment to the community during emergency situations and is an inspiring example to other young adults,” Mayor Laxale said.
“In congratulating the recipients of the Ryde Citizen of the Year and the Young Ryde Citizen of the Year, I would also like to give credit to all the nominees for the 2017 awards, each of whom are invaluable members of the Ryde community through their tireless contributions.”
The awards were announced at the City of Ryde Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony on Friday 26 January, 11 am at the North Ryde School of Arts Hall, 201 Coxs Road, North Ryde.
