‘We are pretty damn proud of you mate, you deserve it’

HE IS a local larrikin, husband, father of three, quick with a joke and always ready to have a chat or a crack at anything, and now he is Queensland’s Apprentice of the Year.

Adam Cross was earlier today presented with the prestigious 2020 Queensland Apprentice of the Year in Glass Glazing award by AGWA board member Wayne Cook, who travelled from Brisbane to Gympie to present the award - COVID-19 put a stop the usual gala awards night where Adam would have received his honour.
