Success for 2018 College Dux

​Hugh Stewart (2018 Dux) is about to commence his University studies at QUT in Brisbane. Hugh gained entry into the Bachelor of Business (Economics), which was his first preference course through his QTAC application. During his 2 years of senior at St Mary’s College, Hugh engaged with his studies in a very highly professional manner always asking questions about how he could improve and then actually implementing the advice.  Along with making decisions about his career path, Hugh also investigated applying for scholarships that would help him complete his studies knowing that financial stability helps with success at University. He was successful. Hugh has been awarded the Corporate Partners in Excellence scholarship which provides him with $36000, two fifteen-week internships with QUT’s corporate partners in the second and third years of the degree, entry into the QUT College of Excellence, priority access to QUT Business School’s Business Advantage Program, the opportunity to represent QUT Business School in international competitions and the opportunity to represent QUT as a student ambassador. Wow! What a fantastic outcome for one of St Mary’s own.  

In Hugh’s words “I felt extremely lucky to receive such a prestigious scholarship and it definitely made all my school and co-curricular achievements feel really worthwhile. All the little extras like House Captain and Lion’s Youth of the Year really contributed towards me being able to obtain the scholarship. I enjoyed my time at the College, but I am looking forward to the next chapter of my life.”

What a fabulous success story for Hugh and as a community, we look forward to hearing more about Hugh’s journey through university and beyond.
