Students win resources scholarships
THREE Moranbah State High School students are well on their way to successful careers in the resource sector after each receiving $2000 scholarships at the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy awards breakfast in Brisbane.
Jai Young, Aiden Brunker and Aaron Hake were among only six students across the state to be awarded for their commitment and achievements in minerals and energy-related subjects.
Jai and Aiden both want to pursue trade careers while Aaron hopes to attend university.
QMEA director Roger Atkins said the young men had shown a keen interest in QMEA events and excelled in their studies.
“With an industry-wide skills shortage, these bright students will be part of a highly sought-after group of employees once qualified,” he said.
“We look forward to following the career paths and welcome them as student ambassadors for the minerals and energy sector in Queensland.”
