Denmark celebration

Five students at South Regional TAFE’s Denmark campus have been awarded scholarships which will ease the cost of study in semester 2.

The students, supported by their friends and family, gathered at a presentation ceremony on 23 August.

Two Diploma of Music students received scholarships of $750 each, donated by the Grist Family, and three Certificate III in Music students received $500 scholarships funded by the Jack Family Charitable Trust.

Richard Grist, representing both sponsors at the ceremony, spoke of the significance of music in culture and society, and the importance of encouraging musical talent.

Presenting the awards, South Regional TAFE Managing Director Duncan Anderson paid tribute to the sponsors for their philanthropy and generosity.

“Through their support of our students, the sponsors have shown their commitment to rewarding educational effort,” Mr Anderson said.

“Sponsors committing funds to the development of music in the town prove their dedication to the local music industry,” he said.

“This gesture also helps to promote music education while encouraging our talented and dedicated up-and-coming musicians to pursue careers in the art.”

Addressing the students, Mr Anderson wished them well in their studies and their future careers.

“As you embark on the next stage of your journey, we trust our continued encouragement and the assistance provided by the scholarship sponsors will help you to make a positive contribution to our community through your chosen career paths,” he said.
