A Rising Star

Our amazing 2017 Stars Graduate, Raelene Collins, was honoured to win the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year Award at the Group Training Northern Territory (GTNT) Training Awards on the weekend.

Earlier this year, Raelene also won the Indigenous Apprentice/Trainee of the Year award at the GTNT Training Awards.

After graduating from the Stars Casuarina program, Raelene began a Traineeship with GTNT, hosted by the Menzies School of Health Research, and completed a Certificate III in Laboratory Skills.

She is now studying towards her Bachelor of Nursing at Charles Darwin University and working casually with Menzies.

Raelene is now off to the National Group Training Awards, which will be held in Brisbane in late November. She truly is a rising Star!
