Moyne Shire Council Provides Boost For 5 Young Students

Five students from across the Moyne Shire have been successful in their application for an annual Moyne Shire Council’s Academic Support Scholarship, receiving $2,000 towards their first year of tertiary study.

The recipients are Tess Harris and Grace Moloney from The Sisters, Hayley Mann from Hexham, Ella Titmus from Wangoom, and Brae Todd from Macarthur.

Moyne Shire Mayor, Cr Daniel Meade said that the scholarships provide financial support to rural students as they begin tertiary studies.

“Council’s Academic Support Scholarships have been running for twenty-three years now, assisting students from within the shire to pursue their academic goals,” Cr Meade said.

“To many students, these scholarships can make a huge difference, breaking down some of the barriers to accessing further education and allowing them to focus on their studies.”

Agriculture student Hayley Mann from Hexham received a $2,000 scholarship to assist in her first year of study at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga.

“This scholarship will greatly assist me to undertake my studies a long way from home, where I have no family or other support networks,” Ms Mann said.

“Coming from six generations of farmers, I’m really looking forward to completing a Bachelor of Agricultural Business Management and learning more about sustainability, to ultimately help farmers produce more from less.”

Local up-and-coming musician, Grace Moloney from The Sisters also received a $2,000 scholarship from Council, to help kick start her career in health care.

“Receiving this scholarship has encouraged me to further my interest in health services and not only help people improve their speech and quality of life, but also help those living in rural areas to access health care services,” Ms Moloney said.

“This scholarship will allow me to work on my music and grow my audience in Melbourne whilst furthering my studies in speech pathology at Victoria University.”

Cr Meade congratulated the recipients and wished them well in their studies.
