Midori Yue Quck
A unique holiday work experience opportunity in a Japanese restaurant made such an impression on Midori Yue Quck that she chose to follow a hospitality career path.
Describing herself as a go-getter, who does not want to leave her career to chance, Midori pursued many different opportunities during her course.
She was part of a student group that organised an innovative Bachelor of Hospitality Management Conference, which brought together some of industry’s leading figures.
She was also proud to have led the winning team for a student award for innovation.
Midori also was a member of Holmesglen’s inaugural Student Association, for which she says she enjoyed growing the student experience though interesting and engaging events.
Bachelor of Nursing
Shannon Kearns - 2021 winner
Propelled by a dream to work alongside her brother who is already a nurse, Shannon Kearns pushed herself to excel in her Holmesglen studies.
A recipient of multiple Dean’s commendations, Shannon credits the strong support provided by her teachers as one of the reasons for her success.
“I feel like I’ve been very supported the whole way through. I’ve definitely got the best education I could possibly have received.”
Her teachers say Shannon's care and support were evident when she completed a paediatrics placement at The Royal Children’s Hospital during her degree.
Despite her study commitments and busy work life as a part-time restaurant team leader, they say Shannon always found time for her peers whenever they needed help.
Shannon intends to further her studies at a postgraduate level.

Zac also received Dean’s commendations for his academic performance. His teachers say he is a natural leader, forming strong connections with his peers.
Zac says he plans to work overseas to broaden his life experience, and, in his leisure, he plays cricket for Malvern Valley.
