The Batemans Bay Youth Foundation held its Annual Grants Presentation Dinner at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club in February 2021. Thirteen students from local high schools receive Grants.
Two Excellence Prizes of $1,000 was paid for scholastic performance in the first year of University, restricted to Grantees of the previous year. The Humanities prize was awarded to Jessica Wright, studying for a B. of Design at ANU, who achieved 2 high distinctions, a distinction and 3 credits in her first year. The Science prize was awarded to Chelsea Yakovenko who is studying for a B. Science, at the University of Wollongong, who achieved 4 distinctions and 4 high distinctions in her first year.
The BBYF was established in 1994 for the purpose of providing financial assistance to students leaving high school to pursue personal development and advancement in an unlimited range of worthwhile fields of endeavour. It is supported by a partnership between Batemans Bay Rotary, RSL and Soldiers Club.
Since 1994 the Foundation has given Grants to 229 students, worth a total value of $708,000. Every cent was locally raised, or privately donated.
The new chairman of the foundation, David Ashford concluded the evening by stating "There are thirteen young people tonight, taking their next step in their lives. The Grant you have just received is a vote of confidence from our community. It is their money you have received via the Foundation. So, work hard, enjoy University life, and make us more proud of you. We wish you all a wonderfully successful future."
