Margaret River artist Bethany Treanor is celebrating after being named Student of the Year for the Margaret River campus at the South Regional TAFE Awards Night last Friday.
The college's outstanding students of 2018 gathered with their family and friends at the Bunbury Entertainment Centre for the presentation to the highest achievers from the South West campuses.
Ms Treanor, who gained the Diploma of Visual Arts, took out the title from dozens of students taking a wide scope of courses at the Margaret River campus last year.
Her lecturer Kay Gibson nominated Ms Treanor for her passion, drive and productivity.
"Bethany clearly enjoyed her course and was a huge asset in the studio classroom for both her fellow students and lecturers," Ms Gibson said.
"She has a promising future in the visual arts sector."
Ms Treanor has participated in the Margaret River Region Open Studios art event and has held a solo exhibition at a local gallery.
Addressing the awards night gathering on Friday night, South Regional TAFE Managing Director Duncan Anderson paid tribute to the award winners for their hard work, dedication and application.
He acknowledged the support of their families and friends and recognised the contribution of the lecturers who nurtured them and encouraged them to achieve their best.
Mr Anderson also made special mention of the evening's many generous sponsors, including local industries, businesses and individuals, and thanked them for their ongoing support for the college's students through funding prizes and scholarships.
Congratulating all last year's graduates during the awards ceremony, Mr Anderson wished them a happy, productive and rewarding future.
