Developing future leaders
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.
