Commission supports Geraldton Universities Centre’s Hollomby Foundation scholarship program

Published on Wednesday, 12 April 2023 at 8:00:00 AM

Last week we were pleased to attend Geraldton Universities Centre’s 2023 Hollomby Foundation Scholarship presentations to award the Commission’s scholarship to recipient Tess Tonkin-Sloan.

Tess is a first year student studying a Bachelor of Education (Secondary) degree with GUC partner university, Central Queensland University.

Named in honour of the late Joe Hollomby, the Hollomby Foundation supports the GUC and Mid West students to access tertiary education without having to leave their community.

By providing opportunity for all local people and recruiting students to courses that address local workforce needs, GUC has pioneered an innovative model over the past 20 years, building the capacity of our region, particularly in the education, health and business sectors.

The Commission has been a long-standing advocate of GUC and donor to the Foundation and we were honoured to accept a handmade clock from Joe's son, Les Hollomby, in recognition of this support.
