Korowa Science Teachers Elena Vakhnin and Michelle Ryan, with Professor Croft, Jeanne Chang and Sarah Yang.
Two Korowa graduates from the Class of 2017 have received scholarships to study Engineering at Monash University.
On Wednesday 9 May, Monash Engineering welcomed 90 first year students, their families and representatives from their high schools to the annual Engineering Scholarship Celebration.
Korowa graduates Sarah Yang and Jeanne Chang were among the select group of recipients celebrated on the evening. The Dean of Engineering, Professor Elizabeth Croft presented a gift to each scholarship recipient in recognition of their achievements.
Guest-speaker, Mechanical Engineering student Monique Lautee presented an inspiring insight into her life at Monash University.
“Engineering is about turning the theory into something useful. It’s going to challenge the way you think, the way you problem solve, the way you work with other people and it will also impact the way you see the world and your place in it,” she emphasised.
Monique’s advice to first year students is to make the most of every opportunity and don’t be afraid to try something new. “Monash has offered me countless opportunities to not only advance my technical skills, but also develop myself as a person – both professionally and personally.”
