Immanuel Lutheran College today awarded Old Scholar Taylor Davis with the 2014 Vic Walker Memorial Scholarship (VWMS).
The scholarship was established in 1999 by Sunshine Coast philanthropist and College benefactor Jocelyn Walker in memory of her late husband, Vic Walker, who established Moby Vic’s on the Sunshine Coast. The scholarship is open to Year 12 Immanuel graduates who undertake to complete their degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) and covers first year tuition fees.
Taylor graduated from Immanuel in 2013. During her time at the College, she was a prefect, member of Amnesty International, Interact and volunteered for the Mountain Creek Breakfast Program and Voices on the Coast Youth Literature Festival. Voices is now in its 19th year and is proudly presented by Immanuel and the University of the Sunshine Coast.
Taylor has embarked on a four year Bachelor of Primary Education degree at USC. She also volunteers for the Maroochydore Library as part of their Kids Corner program and is a regular blood donor for the Australian Red Cross.
“Taylor is an outstanding ambassador for Immanuel as she embodies the qualities most admired by Vic Walker – dedication, responsibility, community service and generosity to others. I thank the Walker family for their ongoing support and congratulate Taylor as this year’s Walker Scholar,” said Principal David Bliss.
