The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) has presented an outstanding student award to a
South African born student, Kerry Voller. Now employed by The Buzz PR, Kerry was presented with the award for excelling over other graduates in the business faculty's promotions management course.
Kerry, who was born in Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal, grew up in Johannesburg and moved to London at the age of 21. After working in the United Kingdom for two years and facing the conclusion of her visa, she decided to further her studies in marketing at USC.
Kerry was among the students who were recently presented with a prize and commemorative certificate to honour the academic excellence she achieved last year. “Winning this award has been a highlight in my life,” she said. “Promotions management emerged as a passion during my studies and I am extremely proud to have been awarded the outstanding student title for this course.”
The formal presentation was attended by key local business representatives from companies that sponsored the faculty's prizes and provided winners with the opportunity to meet the highly regarded individuals.
“Having the chance to meet successful business people from the coast is inspiring. I hope this award is just one step further to emulating such success stories,” said Kerry.
Kerry completed a Bachelor of Business degree, majoring in Marketing, and has now secured the public relations and marketing position at The Buzz PR, which is a Sunshine Coast agency.
