  • Tertiary scholars impress Narooma Rotarians

    2019 - 08.16

    ROTARY SCHOLARS: At Narooma Rotary’s Tertiary Scholarship night last week was Rotarian Charmaine White, left, 2014 Scholarship holder Connor Ross, President Angie Ulrichsen, 2015 Scholarship holder Carl McEvoy, and Rotarian Peter Bull who is counsellor for 2013 Scholarship holder Maia Zucco. NAROOMA Rotarians were delighted to focus on the Club’s Tertiary Scholars at last week’s meeting.

    “It’s always so inspiring to hear from these talented young people,” said Narooma Rotary president Angie Ulrichsen.

    She introduced the 2015 Tertiary Scholarship holder Carl McEvoy who will study for a Bachelor of Media at Macquarie University.

    Carl impressed everyone with his passion for his chosen field, particularly film.

    Rotarians also caught up with last year’s scholarship winner Connor Ross who spoke about his experiences during his gap year.

    This included being NSW winner of the Telstra Road to Discovery competition for developing singer-songwriters and the associated week in Melbourne where he gained valuable insights into the music industry, and a foray into event management organising artists for the local ‘Little Night In’.

    Connor is now looking forward to starting his studies for a Bachelor of Arts (Music Industry) at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.

    The Club’s 2013 Scholar Maia Zucco was unable to be in Narooma that night, so her counsellor Peter Bull read a letter to the Club on her behalf.

    She enters the third year of her Psychology Honours studies at Macquarie University this year, having achieved distinctions or high distinctions in all subjects last year.

    Maia aims to do a Masters of Clinical Neuropsychology.

    She again thanked Rotarians for their “continuing support and genuine interest to my studies”.

    President Angie reminded everyone that the three-year scholarship for a former Narooma High student was only possible because of a bequest made to Rotary for that purpose in 1989 by Alexander Birch.

    “Through his generosity, Narooma Rotary has now helped 25 students from Narooma High pursue their tertiary studies – assistance that totals over $210,000,” she said.

    “However in a few more years, that bequest will be exhausted but Mr Birch will have done what he wanted, to help Narooma young people achieve their dreams with the help of our club.”

    The three year scholarships to both 2012 scholar Joanna Gray and 2011 scholar Tilley Wood have now ended and Narooma Rotarians wish them both every success.
