BSSC Alumna, Macey Stephens, has been awarded the inaugural Rotary Agricultural Scholarship at a special presentation by the Rotary Club of Bendigo.
The new award is a result of Rotary fundraising at the Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show and encourages pathways to further studies in Agriculture.
Macey, who grew up on her family’s sheep and poultry farm near Bendigo, studied VET Animal Studies over her two years as a BSSC student (2018 & 2019) building on her passion for agriculture. This year she begins a Bachelor of Business at LaTrobe University majoring in Agribusiness.
“I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of people from within the agriculture industry,” she said. “I thank Rotary for the opportunity to follow my interests and larn more about the things I’m passionate about.”
Head of VET and RTO Partnerships at BSSC, Jennifer Moloney said it was great to see Macey using her VCE and VET experiences to build a pathway in Agriculture.
“It’s impressive, the way she’s embraced every opportunity.” She said.
