A Central Coast Community College student who overcame exceptional circumstances to complete her studies in the Certificate III in Aged Care, has been awarded a special prize for her achievements.
Kathleen Marshall was presented with the Central Coast Campus Friends Award at the College’s Annual Awards night in April, in front of her family and peers. To receive this award, Kathleen had to demonstrate outstanding academic achievement whilst overcoming obstacles during her studies.
As well as receiving the $300 Award, Kathleen has also gained an honorary membership to Central Coast Campus Friends for a year.
“I am very honoured to have received this Award and am very grateful to Central Coast Campus Friends and especially to Central Coast Community College for the support they gave me during my studies”, Kathleen said.
Beth Bolte, President of Central Coast Campus Friends, said that their organisation is committed to strengthening post school education on the Coast and the annual award had gone to a worthy recipient.
“Kathleen Marshall is a very worthy recipient of our Award. She is a young lady whose exceptional personal circumstances were overcome to complete qualifications for the Care industry.
“This action fits with the Central Coast Campus Friends philosophy that the more skilled and better educated community members are, the better they are equipped to maintain fulfilling, healthy and successful lives.
“We wish Kathleen every success in her chosen career”, Ms Bolte said.
