Cait­lyn re­ceives schol­ar­ship

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Memo­rial Schol­ar­ship is funded by a legacy from the es­tate of the late Fred Tay­lor who was a long term and dis­tin­guished mem­ber of the Ro­tary Club of Corowa.

The schol­ar­ship has been es­tab­lished in ac­cor­dance with Fred’s wishes to give as­sis­tance to lo­cal stu­dents in meet­ing costs as­so­ci­ated with their stud­ies.

This year’s re­cip­i­ent was Cait­lyn Moore. She is cur­rently study­ing a Bach­e­lor of Med­i­cal and Ra­di­a­tion Physics at The Univer­sity of Wol­lon­gong.

Cait­lyn grew up in Corowa and at­tended St. Mary’s Pri­mary School and Corowa High School, where she was a house cap­tain and SRC rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Cait­lyn has been in­volved in many com­mu­nity groups such as Girl Guides, Youth Coun­cil and Leos and played many sports over the years.

She has helped with var­i­ous com­mu­nity events and her com­mu­nity in­volve­ment led to her be­ing awarded Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Young Cit­i­zen of the Year in 2017.

Pres­i­dent Bill Bott pre­sented Cait­lyn with her cheque at a re­cent meet­ing of the Ro­tary Club of Corowa.

Cait­lyn thanked the Ro­tary Club, say­ing that the schol­ar­ship will be in­valu­able to her by as­sist­ing her to pur­chase text­books, pro­tec­tive cloth­ing and other re­sources re­quired by her course.

It will al­low her to con­cen­trate more on her stud­ies with­out the added bur­den of fi­nan­cial stress. Cait­lyn is lov­ing univer­sity life, liv­ing on cam­pus and mak­ing the most of ev­ery op­por­tu­nity. She loves be­ing near the beach and has made many new friends but she still loves to come home to her fam­ily and friends when­ever pos­si­ble.

Cait­lyn’s course will take her three to four years to com­plete and she hopes to be able to come back to the area and help lo­cals, pos­si­bly by work­ing at the Al­bury Can­cer Cen­tre or other lo­cal hos­pi­tals. Cait­lyn’s will­ing­ness to give back to the lo­cal com­mu­nity, her happy and in­fec­tious at­ti­tude and the fact that she loves to give ev­ery­thing a go was what made her the suc­cess­ful can­di­date in 2018.

The schol­ar­ship is open to any stu­dent un­der­tak­ing full time ter­tiary study, ir­re­spec­tive of which year of the course they are un­der­tak­ing.

It is also open to those un­der­tak­ing full time post grad­u­ate stud­ies and TAFE cour­ses.

Ap­pli­ca­tions open on the first day of Feb­ru­ary each year and close on March 31 of that given year. More in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at https://www.corowaro­tary.org.au/pro­ject­sev­ents/schol­ar­ship/.

Each year the Ro­tary Club of Corowa awards a $3000 schol­ar­ship to a stu­dent who was a res­i­dent of Corowa whilst study­ing for their HSC and is now un­der­tak­ing full time ter­tiary stud­ies.
