Zonta awards local students
CQUNIVERSITY Engineering student Morgan Lewis and Occupational Therapy student Jacqueline Harper were very happy to receive their Zonta Encouragement Awards at the CQUniversity Awards ceremony recently. Unfortunately, Hannah Smith who won the Paramedic Science Award, was unable to attend the ceremony. All awards were judged on academic results.
Morgan Lewis, who won the Zonta Club of Rockhampton Engineering Encouragement Award, is in her second year of the Bachelor of Engineering Co-op Degree and Jacqueline Harper is in her first year of the Occupational Therapy Degree after winning the Zonta Club of Rockhampton STEPS Award which enabled her to pursue a career in her chosen field. Hannah Smith, who won the Zonta Club of Rockhampton Paramedic Science Encouragement Award, is in her second year of study for the degree.
After the presentation of the awards by Vice Chancellor Scott Bowman, Morgan and Jacqueline met with Zonta Service Chair Berenice Payne to say thank you to the Zonta Club. Both Morgan and Jacqueline agreed that the financial component of the award was most welcome. The Zonta Club of Rockhampton has been supporting women with awards at CQUniversity since 1985.
