Teegan Bell, Customer Experience and Airport Operations Officer at Newcastle Airport, has become the second recipient of the Kristen Keegan Future Leaders Program (FLP) Scholarship.
The Kristen Keegan Future Leaders Scholarship is a joint initiative between HunterNet and the Hunter Business Chamber, aimed at honouring Kristen’s legacy. The Scholarship covers the tuition for one participant as part of the HunterNet Future Leaders Program 2018.
The Assessment Panel, which comprised of Hunter Business Chamber’s Anita Hugo and HunterNet’s Tony Cade, said it received a number of high calibre applications from young leaders across the Hunter.
“We are very pleased to announce that Teegan Bell is the 2018 Kristen Keegan FLP Scholarship recipient. This year’s candidates were all of a very high calibre, which makes Teegan’s success even more significant. We look forward to seeing the benefits this program brings to Teegan’s future development,” panel participants said.
Teegan’s application detailed her aspirations to become a future leader in the Hunter, highlighting the importance of meaningful working relationships within the local community.
She demonstrated a commitment to personal and professional development through her work coaching cheerleading and gymnastics, along with her career progression at Newcastle Airport.
Teegan said the program will be beneficial to her self-growth, career development and her efforts in supporting others.
“I believe that this type of program is leading the way in the Hunter to develop young leaders, outside of the normal study and workplace environments,” Teegan said.
Teegan is studying a Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice part-time through Open Universities while working full time at Newcastle Airport.
“We congratulate Teegan on her successful application and look forward to following the development of all the 2018 Future Leaders Program participants as they progress through the program,” Tony said.
