Mr MARK COURE (OatleyMinister for Multiculturalism, and Minister for Seniors)
——Speaker, I rise to acknowledge and congratulate a member of my local community, Tirza Winarta, for receiving a scholarship. Tirza was recently announced as the winner of an AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship and is one of 20 rural leaders who were selected to receive the award. Award recipients like Tirza will receive $10,000 across two years, whilst also attending a four-day professional development workshop and completing two weeks of industry placement each year. This will allow recipients to further develop their skills and expand their networking opportunities. Local leaders such as Tirza are so important to our community and I hope this scholarship allows her to gain a better insight into agricultural issues facing our community and state. I would like to again congratulate Tirza for receiving this scholarship and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.
