Four South Burnett students have been appointed to leadership positions at the University of Southern Queensland’s residential colleges for 2019.
Former Nanango State High School student Jared Mathews is a senior Resident Adviser, ie. the member of the Collegiate Team who is the first point of contact for helping other students who have difficulties, whether they be academic or personal.
“I have found that my leadership experiences have helped with my teamwork and problem-solving skills as well as learning to think on my feet in high pressure situations,” Jared said.
His brother Brock is looking forward to the opportunity to learn new skills.
“The opportunity to have a greater impact on residential life is what made me apply for a leadership position,” Brock said.
“I hope to learn skills that will make me more employable in the future.
“Being able to communicate and work as a team are important skills to have.”
The other two South Burnett students are Ashleigh Reinbott and Taylah Currell.
They are following in the footsteps of recent graduate, former Kingaroy State High student Kyra O’Sullivan, who was a member of the college leadership team for three years.
