ANNOUNCING THE 2019 SOUTH AUSTRALIAN YOUNG ACHIEVER OF THE YEAR: SEAN GREALY!
Unfortunately for the sport of motorcycling, SA’s Connor Hogan missed out on a 7 News Young Achiever Award last Friday night when the winner were announced at a ceremony held at the Hilton International.
Connor was one of 4 finalists for the Worldwide Sports Award, but was beaten out by international Karate star, Carlos Maya Koch, and Motorcycling SA congratulate Carlos on his award, very well deserved.
Connor himself, wasn’t able to attend the evening due to being in Europe preparing for the opening round of the Trial2 World Championship, which will be held this weekend in Italy. He was represented on the night by his mother, Tyler, and grandfather, Mr Bill Mudge.
Not being awarded the Sports Award also put Connor out of the running for the overall SA Ýoung Achiever of the Year Award, which was won by Sean Grealy, and like Carlos, motorcycling SA extends its congratulations.
Sean Grealy, 23 of Morphettville is committed to improving aged care services. He founded CARE Konnect, a suite of software enabling better communication and service quality in aged care, to solve his family’s own problem when his grandfather entered aged care services for the first time.
Care Konnect brings together vulnerable people, their families, and care providers therefore reducing social isolation and promoting healthy ageing in care.
It receives funding from investors and partnership deals with aged care providers.
It expects to connect over 3,000 families in 2019. Sean contributes to his community by working on start-ups like the University of Adelaide ThincLab and Hacker Exchange
Sean took home an additional $2,000 and an amazing overall winner trophy. Congratulations!
Nominations for the 2020 SA Young Achiever Awards will open once again later in the year, so start having a think about nominating some of the amazing young people involved in our sport!
