Connecting Southern Gold Coast CEO Peter Doggett had the pleasure of attending a presentation ceremony at Kirra Hill Community Centre earlier in July to present Southern Cross University’s Rising Stars Scholarships. CSGC sponsored two scholarships awarded to local high school students.
The winners were Theressa Mariano and Joel Smith from Palm Beach Currumbin State High School, who will now go on to study a Bachelor of Business in Tourism and Hospitality Management.
The Rising Stars Scholarships are an initiative of Southern Cross University, supporting the bright stars of the future that demonstrate outstanding academic potential, as well as assisting students facing financial difficulties that otherwise might not achieve a university education.
Thanks to Professor Geraldine Mackenzie, Deputy Vice Chancellor – Research at SCU, who assisted in the presentations on behalf of the University.
