De­vel­op­ing fu­ture lead­ers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

BEL­MONT res­i­dent Re­nee Cor­reya has been named an in­au­gu­ral re­cip­i­ent of a Curtin Univer­sity award.

This year, Curtin Univer­sity launched the Sir Charles Court Lead­er­ship Award and an­nounced seven first-year stu­dents as the 2016 win­ners.

Re­cip­i­ents were el­i­gi­ble for the award af­ter par­tic­i­pat­ing in the univer­sity’s Year 10 lead­er­ship pro­gram, the Sir Charles Court Young Lead­ers Pro­gram (SCCYLP), and then en­rolling in an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree af­ter high school.

Ms Cor­reya (18) re­ceived a one-off cash pay­ment of $3000 to­wards ed­u­ca­tion ex­penses for her dou­ble Bach­e­lor of Law and Arts de­grees.

SCCLYP pro­gram co-or­di­na­tor Genevieve Hodge said the award was a great sup­port sys­tem for stu­dents.

“The Sir Charles Court Lead­er­ship Award is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to re­ward stu­dents who com­pleted the SCCYLP and com­menced their higher ed­u­ca­tion with Curtin,” Ms Hodge said.

The SCCYLP has been run­ning since 1999 and is based on shared ideas of Sir Charles Court and for­mer prime min­is­ter John Curtin, in­clud­ing vision, lead­er­ship and com­mu­nity ser­vice.
