Imogen Mabin named Campbelltown's Youth Ambassador for 2019: Photos

Imogen Mabin, 16, has topped her grade in every subject ... bar one.

In that one she missed - PDHP (personal development, health and physical education) - she placed second.

That stunning academic record is just one of the reasons why the Year 11 student from St Patrick's College has been named as Campbelltown's Youth Ambassador for 2019.

She was named at Campbelltown Rotary's annual Youth Excellence Awards, which drew a big crowd to Wests Leagues Club on Monday night.

Jack O'Toole of Rosemeadow's John Therry High School was the runner-up for his long list of achievements in martial arts.

Many other local schools shined too, particularly Broughton Anglican College and Woodland Road Public School with multiple category winners.

Imogen, as the 2019 Youth Ambassador, said she was surprised to win given the outstanding field of talent she was up against.

"I'm still not exactly sure what I want to do [as a career]," she said.

"Previously I thought I might work in the design area, but now I'm heading more to a narrative focus - I really love English and creative writing - but the ideal dream job would be in musical theatre."

She thanked her supportive parents, St Patrick's College and the teacher who nominated her, Wendy McDonald.

"Imogen has not only built upon her own academic success but has added to the knowledge and understanding of those around her, frequently and unselfishly providing valuable peer mentoring," Ms McDonald said.

"Imogen's remarkable commitment, and the respect her peers have for her, is evident in the long list of academic, school community and other nominated awards that have been attached to this nomination."

Apart from Imogen, and Jack O'Toole who won the special Roy Bowl Award, other awards category finalists on the night included:

Cody Turner of Broughton Anglican College (sport), Bianca Gannan of Sarah Redfern High (community service/leadership), Nishta Gupta of Broughton Anglican College (creative arts), Andrew Carter of Broughton Anglican College (performing arts), Malina Millman of Campbelltown Performing Arts High School (dynamic achiever) and Jacob Goodridge of Broughton Anglican College (innovation & technology).

In the younger categories, winners were Olivia Cairns of Woodland Road Public School (Performing Arts/Creative Arts), Stacey Ellis of Woodland Road Public School (Sport), Katelin Renshaw of Broughton Anglican College (Academic), and Amy Dawson of Campbelltown East Public School (Community Service/Leadership).

The outgoing 2018 Youth Ambassador Rebecca Hatch spoke on the night, and she performed at this week's State of Origin.
