Katan­ning stu­dent Wendy Ste­hbens was pre­sented with a schol­ar­ship of $500 at a cer­e­mony at the South Re­gional TAFE campus last Wed­nes­day.

Ms Ste­hbens who is study­ing a Cer­tifi­cate III in Con­ser­va­tion and Land Man­age­ment, was one of 20 stu­dents through­out the col­lege who were awarded a schol­ar­ship spon­sored by the Jack Fam­ily Char­i­ta­ble Trust. South Re­gional TAFE train­ing direc­tor Kathy Keay pre­sented the schol­ar­ship on be­half of manag­ing direc­tor Dun­can An­der­son.

Ms Keay thanked the Jack Fam­ily Char­i­ta­ble Trust for its phi­lan­thropy and gen­eros­ity in fa­cil­i­tat­ing study for the col­lege’s stu­dents.

She said many of the stu­dents were manag­ing their study along­side full and part-time work, fam­ily and other per­sonal com­mit­ments, and these scholarships pro­vided en­cour­age­ment as well as help­ing to re­move the fi­nan­cial bar­ri­ers to suc­cess.

“Through their sup­port of our stu­dents, the spon­sors have also shown their com­mit­ment to re­ward­ing ed­u­ca­tional ef­fort,” Ms Keay said.

The scholarships will help al­le­vi­ate the fi­nan­cial pres­sure of study­ing and may be used for course fees or other study costs.
