Hennessy students receive scholarships at annual presentation

Hennessy Catholic College Principal Trazel Scott and Projects Coordinator Brett Cowan congratulated the school's scholarship recipients of 2019 during a ceremony held at the school on Thursday.

The ceremony was attended by students, scholarship sponsors, and parents of the award recipients. 

Scholarships awarded were The Rotary Award on behalf of Briggs Family which went to Angus Brown, the Lodge Young Burrangong Award to Kara Mooney, the William Rubensohn Foundation Scholarship was shared by Jovan Croese and Damon Xia and the Donges IGA Award went to Bridget Maloney.

Projects Coordinator Brett Cowan congratulated the recipients and gave great thanks to the organisations here in Young who continue to annually sponsor student scholarships.

"Sometimes I wonder if these organisations realise just how important they are to these students, and let me just say, the students and the school are so thankful for their continuous support," Projects Coordinator Brett Cowan said.

"Thank you all also for coming here today to be present while our students receive their scholarships."

Hennessy Catholic College Principal Trazel Scott elaborated on the thanks.

She also spoke of the importance of the continued tradition of local businesses sponsoring of scholarships, reiterating just how significant their continued support is to the community, and most importantly to the recipients.

"Our community is so important to us, and the support of these organisations allows us to continue to support our students which in turn makes a huge difference to our community," Ms Scott said.

"I'd like to also extend my congratulations to the scholarship recipients here to today.

"Congratulations to these students for working hard, for really making a difference within our community and within our school, and I hope that the scholarships you've received today will make a difference to you in your journey as you move forward."
