Marketing and Communications Assistant Manager for Westerner Park Ashley Nelson received the Future Leaders Award as part of CAFE's Youth Inspired program for those under 30 years old.
She says she started as a volunteer at Westerner Days.
At the awards in Halifax, Nelson also presented Westerner Park's Assistant General Manager & Operations Manager Jim White with the 2019 Roll of Honour Award for his distinguished service to the fair industry.
