Rhianne Pearce was the recipient of the prestigious Lou Gatti Memorial Scholarship last month. Rhianne is a Bundaberg local and when she was presented with the scholarship, she had this to say:
"The funding enabled me to pay for my textbooks, equipment required for residential school and set myself up for the beginning of my university studies.
I struggle to find the words to convey just how thankful I am. Perhaps just giving you the knowledge of how much this scholarship was a blessing for me, will be enough to convey my thanks."
We wish to congratulate Rhianne for receiving this scholarship and wish her the best of luck with her continued studies.
The Lou Gatti Memorial Scholarship was established in honour of Lou Gatti’s life and achievements. It recognises Lou’s contribution to the Bundaberg community, in particular, his efforts to establish services and programs to improve the lives of the most vulnerable. Lou was a valued staff member of IMPACT for many years and we are proud to be partnered with CQU for this scholarship.
