Guest tonight included Stella’s Family, Partner Louis El-Sheikh, Rubii and Pasquo El-Sheikh. University SA’s Regional Manager Paul Havelberg and Lecturer Cheryl Gaston. 

This is now the third year the Club has awarded this prestigious prize and each year the student receiving it has been a worthy recipient.  It was indeed an honour again, to see this award go to such a deserving recipient.
