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.
