Foundation Helps Students Achieve Dreams
Marking its 20th year of operation, the Hunter TAFE Foundation has granted 23 deserving students $17,500 worth of awards and scholarships in a formal ceremony at TAFE NSW Kurri Kurri. Attended by more than 70 members of the Hunter business community, students and their families, the event celebrated the recipients’ resilience, determination and commitment to further education.
All students study at TAFE NSW facilities in the Hunter or Central Coast region and applied to the Foundation for financial assistance to help them achieve their study goals. Their courses range from Certificates to Diplomas.
TAFE NSW Regional General Manager Susie George said, “This presentation is a particularly poignant occasion. We have witnessed almost two dozen students who will directly benefit from the generosity of Hunter TAFE Foundation donors and the concerted efforts of the Foundation directors.”
“It is wonderful to hear about what a difference the awards and scholarships will make to these students.”
Established in 2000, the Hunter TAFE Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organisation working with business, education and community leaders committed to supporting education and training at TAFE NSW by helping students achieve their goals. Last financial year it presented over $75,000 in awards and scholarships.
