Nine local students have received scholarships from the Young branch of the Country Education Foundation (CEF) to assist them with their tertiary studies in 2019.
Students from Hennessy Catholic College, Young High School and the Young TAFE Campus received over $15,000 in funding made possible through generous community donations to the Country Education Foundation Young branch. In the coming weeks, all of the recipients will be packing their bags and leaving Young to commence their studies at various universities across NSW and the ACT.
Cassie Boland and Ellie Hobba, both school captains in 2018, were chosen among the recipients. Ellie is heading to the Australian National University to study science while Cassie is making the move to Sydney to study music and secondary education at the Western Sydney University Penrith campus.
TAFE student Annabelle Reynolds successfully completed the Certificate IV in Tertiary Preparation at the Young TAFE Campus and will be heading to the University of Wollongong to study a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology.
The Committee of the Young CEF wish to thank the Young S & C Club and Causmag International for their generous corporate donations and look forward to the continued support of the Young community in 2019.
If you or your organisation is able to assist the Committee or donate to the cause, please contact the President Mrs Leanne Parkman at Hennessy Catholic College.
