Joyce Newton Bursary

Jessica Perro wins Joyce Newton OAM Memorial Bursary

This week, Mr Andrew Powell MP came to present Jessica Perro with the Joyce Newton OAM Memorial Bursary for winning first prize.

The competition involved a 1000-word essay on the topic of ‘What is the value of the many small businesses and farmers in the seat of Glass House and what is their importance to the State of Queensland?’. Jess wrote an incredible essay, very worthy of first prize.

On social media this week, Mr Powell shared the following accolades for Jessica:

“It was with much pleasure, and a tinge of sadness, that I presented Glasshouse Christian College’s Jess Perro with the inaugural Joyce Newton OAM Memorial Bursary. Jess picks up a $1,000 voucher to spend at Concept Computers, dinner for her and her family at Parliament and a chance to hear her essay read in to Hansard! Congratulations Jess! Your essay on the contribution of agriculture and small business to the electorate of Glass House was well researched and very well written. I look forward to hosting you in Parliament soon.” https://www.facebook.com/AndrewPowellMP/posts/2335849816496956
