Club members will know that Alyssia Baker was the winner of the Modbury Rotary/John Tilley Award at the 2015 Modbury High School Prizegiving in October 2015. She and her family were our special guests at Meeting #1537 on 23 November.
We are delighted to hear that Alyssia achieved a score of 99.25% in her uni entry ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) being 99.8%!!! Proud Dad says that the family are very happy in view of the family trauma that was experienced mid-year. It is a credit to Alyssia’s strength and determination that she attained a perfect score in Chemistry and will receive her merit at a special reception at Government house early next year. Her dreams of being a hospital pharmacist look promising to say the least and the challenges continue into the new year.
Now isn’t that a bit special? We add our congratulations to this outstanding young lady and wish her well in her continuing studies.
It’s when you get feedback like this that you realise the continuing value of the Annual Award – now in its 31st year.
