Whyalla Mayor Lyn Breuer presented Acel Carpena-McElroy with her Australian citizenship


HAPPY DAY: Nathan and Acel after accepting her citizenship from Whyalla Mayor Lyn Breuer.

Whyalla can boast another proud, official Aussie after Acel Carpena-McElroy accepted her citizenship from Mayor Lyn Breuer.

Acel and her husband Nathan came into the Council chambers for the official ceremony and couldn’t have been more pleased and proud.

Acel hails from the Philippines and has been living in Australia for ten years. The couple has been living in Whyalla for the past six years after moving from Perth.

Acel and Nathan have now started their family in Whyalla, with sons Leo and Emmanuelle, and said they were blessed to be living here.

“This is paradise,” Acel said after receiving her certificate from Mayor Breuer.

“There are some many opportunities and Whyalla is a great place for a family and to bring up children.”

Mayor Breuer said these ceremonies were always a highlight on her schedule of appointments and duties.

“To hear Acel say Whyalla is paradise and a great place to bring up kids should remind us all how lucky we are,” Mayor Breuer said.

“We are lucky to be Australians and we should all be proud to be living in Whyalla.”
