Community Bank® announces 2015 Scholarships for not one but THREE local students
Upper Yarra, Tuesday, 10 February 2015: Three students from the Upper Yarra area have received a great boost to their education with today’s announcement of the recipients of the Scholarship 2015 program, provided by the Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank® Branches.
The three students are: Miss Kaitlyn Whitelaw from Gladysdale, who will commence a course in Paramedicine at the Australian Catholic University, Miss Sarah Enery from Wesburn, who will commence a Diploma in Youth Work at Box Hill TAFE and a second year of support for Miss Georgia Martin, from Millgrove and last year’s scholarship recipient, who enters her second year of studies in Psychology at Deakin University.
All three students showed exemplary commitment to their studies in a range of challenging circumstances and demonstrated need that financial assistance would help ease the demands of travel and accommodation expenses incurred in studying away from home.
Warburton & Yarra Junction Community Bank® Branches Chairman Peter Kimberley said supporting students towards tertiary study was part of the branches’ commitment to building a stronger Upper Yarra community.
“The high cost associated with tertiary study can have a significant impact on a young person’s ability to further their education and some may not get the chance to achieve their academic dreams without some help,” Mr Kimberley said.
‘’Our Community Bank® Branches are proud to support this Scholarship program for a second year, as part of our ongoing community investment program.”
“In meeting these three dedicated young people in our community, I am reminded of the quote that young people are about one-fifth of our population but one hundred percent of our future.”
The future for these three locals is now off to a great start.
