Background of Recipient:
Colin Rose is a Business and Accounting student from the small town of Fortune. Passionate about his community, Colin has volunteered many hours coaching local youth and basketball teams and worked closely with members of the community during his time at the Fortune Green Depot. His time at SPM Ferry Office allowed him to work in a fast-paced environment, which he attributes to the development of his self confidence and understanding of the tourism industry.
A natural leader, Colin has stepped up in his community with the desire to improve his leadership skills. He prides himself on his ability to coach local youth in his hometown while helping them develop values of respect and teamwork. Colin has also occasionally taken on the duty of caring for local children in his neighborhood, demonstrating a brilliant sense of community togetherness and responsibility. In his free time, Colin takes part in regular resistance training at the local YMCA, and plays hockey and basketball, two extracurricular activities he knows have helped him develop time-management and goal-setting skills.
Colin is excited to pursue a career as a CPA and looks forward to a future where he can use the many skills he’s learned from his community involvement, volunteer work, and extracurricular activities.
Colin is the son of Hospitality NL member Brian Rose, Owner/Operator of Hotel Fortune – a recently built, modern and luxurious hotel in Fortune, Newfoundland and Labrador, the “Gateway to St. Pierre & Miquelon”.
