IMPACT Community Services extends a huge congratulations to Renae Harland, this year’s recipient of the IMPACT Community Services Prize at CQUniversity.
This award is one of the CQUniCares Academic Prizes and is awarded to the second year Wide Bay Burnett region CC59 Bachelor of Public Health (Specialisation), CQ23 Bachelor of Nursing, CL71 Bachelor of Social Work or CC43 Bachelor of Psychological Science student who achieves the best results (highest GPA).
In a letter to IMPACT Renae expressed sincere gratitude for the recognition and support provided through the awards.
“I owe my success within my courses to the rich learning environment at CQUniversity as much as to my own hard work,” Renae said.
“Without the support and resources of the faculty and staff, I am certain that I could not have flourished as I did.
“The financial assistance you’ve provided has lightened my financial burden and will be of great help to me in paying my educational expenses.
“Thank you again for your generosity and support as I continue to learn and advance in my field.”
Renae promised to continue to study hard and hopes one day to be able to help students achieve their goals.
“I am a single mum of three beautiful children, and I work two jobs, one in Disability Services and the other as a Trainer in Community Services,” Renae said.
“I started this degree because of my passion for helping people, I want to learn as much as I can so that I can continue to make a difference in the lives of others.
“I plan to complete my degree and then continue in my education through a master’s and one day my PhD.
“To receive this support from such an inspirational company such as IMPACT is an honour.
“Thank you so much for not only what you have done for me but for all the programs and ways your staff and people make a difference in the lives of everyday people in the Wide Bay community.”
IMPACT wishes Renae the very best with future studies and helping make a difference in people's lives. To find out more about the CQUniCares Academic Prizes visit their webpage.
