Brad Cullen – Justice Studies and Forensics
Being the rst in his family to attend university, Brad has faced a number of challenges as he transitioned to the city from the regional coastal environment in Ulladulla. He supported himself through his nal years of schooling and understands the importance of gaining a higher education.
Brad has spent many hours volunteering at the Ulladulla Soup Kitchen, considering himself lucky to have somewhere to live and a job to support his own needs. His aim is to transfer his degree to one of law and social work and the support of the scholarship provided by the Rotary Club of Hall has enabled him to spend more of his time studying and less working. Brad will also be attending RYLA in January 2016.
Kira Copeland – Web Design and Production
Passionate in her studies, it is clear Kira will achieve her goals. She is very grateful for the support the Rotary Club of Hall Scholarship has provided her as she established herself in her rst year studying at the University of Canberra. Being awarded the scholarship provided her with a con dence boost and the time to adjust to her new environment and settle into her tertiary studies. In her home town of Jindabyne, Kira involved herself in her school community, organising and running fundraising events and creating a grant to gift to local disadvantaged children.
