On 24 March 2017, Wasserburg’s historic town hall was the setting for the state prize ceremony of the Rosenheim district. The most successful graduates, this year 124 students, from all vocational schools in the district were honoured.

At the beginning of the ceremony, Gerhard Heindl, Headmaster of Wasserburg’s vocational school, welcomed the guests. He was very happy about the large number of award-winners from all professional apprenticeships in the district. All winners had earned their prizes by hard work and perseverance. In their speeches, Wolfgang Berthaler, Rosenheim’s District Administrator, and Michael Kölbl, Wasserburg’s First Mayor, were full of praise for the students and their excellent results.

Then the 124 graduates were honoured for their outstanding achievements. As a sign of recognition, they received a certificate signed by Brigitta Brunner, President of the Government of Upper Bavaria. In addition, Wolfgang Berthaler gave the winners a cash prize, donated by the Rosenheim district.

Kathrein’s state prize winners were: Johanna Denkschmid, Isabell Späth, Melanie Hupfauer, Steffen Hahn, Simon Neumüller, Christian Reichert, Veronika Rockinger, Franz Schex, Marianne Steinegger and Simon Winhart.
