Education of youth is one of the major goals which the ATBC strongly supports and promotes within our community. Our succeeding students are our future professional, business people and the ATBC is proud to nurture and encourage their efforts so they may continue on their chosen course.
Each year ATUSA in cooperation with the Melbourne Turkish Consulate hold a ceremony for Turkish students who have gained entry into a University and have achieved an ENTER score greater than 80 points.
For the last 4 years running, since the birth of the awards, the ATBC have been extremely proud to be part of these awards. The ATBC supports and congratulates all students completing their VCE but also are proud to honour the three highest achieving students by presenting them with a financial gift.
This year ATBC president Huseyin Mustafa proudly acknowledged and awarded the following Year 12 students, who completed their VCE in 2008. The highest ENTER score was achieved by Kaan Gude (98.65) who was presented with $1000 from Osman Kuyruk of Bross Panels.
Yusuf Doger (98.15) was presented with $500 from Kazim Ates of Pacificgate International-Freshplus.
And thirdly Deniz Guvegen (97.5) received a $250 cheque which was presented from Ali Yildirim of Complete Financial Care.
Also as a special tribute, Necmi Kul from Sultan Meats presented a $250 cheque to Emre Akgoz who received a perfect score of 50 for VCE Turkish Language.
This year’s event was a happy celebration for the students and their proud families. The Turkish Consulate of Melbourne, Mr Aydin Nurhan delivered an inspiring speech to the many students, parents and community leaders who were present.
Huseyin Mustafa also gave a wonderful speech to all whom attended. Huseyin Mustafa told all those present that the ATBC would continue their support of Turkish students, not only financially but by also assisting graduate students to find employment. ATBC members have employed many Turkish students including two past presidents of ATUSA.
The ATBC would like to wish a prosperous education to all students who received tertiary places in 2009.
