We are pleased to announce Lauren Kenny has been chosen as the Sacred Heart Girls’ College recipient of the 2023 Deakin Young Influencer Award. This prestigious award is open to all Year 11 students.

The Deakin Young Influencer Award recognises excellence and celebrates students who are truly motivated to make a positive difference in the world - now and into the future. Lauren has contributed to many community initiatives including Clean Up Australia Day, Red Cross Calling and is a member of Girl Guides Australia. Lauren continually engages with her community and strives to help those in need, while caring for our environment and standing up for what she believes in. These values of community leadership, change advocacy and progressive thinking are ones that Deakin seeks to uphold, and we commend Lauren for her commitment to them.

The University has rewarded Lauren’s efforts and achievements with a $5000 scholarship to support her first year of study at Deakin in 2025.

Congratulations Lauren, we wish you all the best and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.

Congratulations Lauren
