Dylan Henry, an aspiring electrician, CFA volunteer and student from Narre Warren South P-12 College has been awarded this year’s Lynne Kosky Memorial VCAL Scholarship.

Parliamentary Secretary for Education Judith Couacaud Graley presented the scholarship to Dylan at Parliament House earlier this week.

The scholarship provides $5000 per year for up to five years to fund study, training or an apprenticeship.

Dylan will be undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) next year and has already secured work placement at AGL Contracting.

The introduction of VCAL was one of Ms Kosky’s greatest achievements during her term as Minister for Education and Training from 2002 to 2006.

“It is through the tireless efforts of Lynne Kosky that Dylan now has this opportunity to achieve his every best and he is certainly wasting no time in doing so.”
