Rohan Stocker, of Bega, has won the 2010 Bevan Corbett award.

This most prestigious award is presented yearly to the first year collegian who best emulates the qualities of former College resident, Bevan Corbett (2004-05).

Bevan resided in Warrane for two years and was notable for his commitment to College activities, his application to his studies and on the sporting field, and his spirit of service. Early in 2006 Bevan was tragically killed near Cobar while on placement for his mining engineering studies.

The award, a perpetual trophy donated by Bevan’s parents, is presented by the Master of the College, who chooses a winner based on nominations made by the residential tutors.

Rohan is a worthy recipient of the award. Not only has he maintained a high distinction average and represented the College in a number of sports, he has also contributed to College life consistently during the year. “Rohan is your quintessential quiet achiever” said College Master Tony Shannon.

Rohan said he was honoured to receive the award. “It is a privilege to have your name alongside those past recipients, and particularly alongside Bevan’s.”
