The Stevenson Family Scholarship Recipients

On Wednesday 9 May our Executive Dean Glenn Salkeld attended a morning tea to celebrate the Stevenson Family Scholarship. The event was held as an official thank you and recognition of the Stevenson family for their generous support as long term donors of the university and was a great opportunity to bring these students and their families together to highlight that they are part of something bigger than themselves, they are part of a community of giving that will continue to have an impact for generations to come.
