Isis Town and Country - - News -

A FU­TURE Com­mu­nity Leader Schol­ar­ship val­ued at $6000 will help Booyal’s Sarah Perry pur­sue fur­ther study. Uni­ver­sity of South­ern Queens­land an­nounced the re­gional win­ners of its $80,000 schol­ar­ship pool ear­lier this week, with the of­fi­cial func­tion to be held to­mor­row. The sports cap­tain and band cap­tain Sarah will study for a USQ Bach­e­lor of Ed­u­ca­tion. She lives on a 140-acre farm at Booyal near Childers where she works part-time at the lo­cal IGA su­per­mar­ket, and wants to teach pri­mary school in Queens­land’s ru­ral ar­eas. “Win­ning this schol­ar­ship means a lot to me be­cause I didn’t think I had a chance be­ing a ru­ral stu­dent,” she said. USQ vice-chan­cel­lor and pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Jan Thomas said the bur­saries en­cour­aged lo­cal stu­dents to con­tinue at­tain­ing out­stand­ing re­sults.
