Even though she could not attend in person, Amy Woodhouse had two reasons to celebrate during the recent 2012 Central Queensland TAFE graduation ceremony.

Amy marked completion of her Diploma of Business and earned the CQUniversity Vocational Student of the Year Award, valued at $2000, as well as the Institute Council Overall Student of the Year award.

Although she started her studies in Longreach, Amy now lives in the Bedourie area of western Queensland and was able to complete her studies online, under the guidance of her Business teacher Wendy Thomas, while working in office administration for Diamantina Shire Council.

"My boss was very encouraging and hopefully I'd like to continue studying and do a Human Resources course after I've had my baby," Amy says.

CQUniversity Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Bowman and Deputy VC (Industry and Vocational Education and Training) Nik Babovic attended the ceremony held at Rockhampton Leagues Club on December 11.

Congratulations also to Amy Schreiweis who gained the CQ TAFE Trainee of the Year Award and to Sacha Thompson who was named as Indigenous and South Sea Islander Student of the Year.
