Guest Speaker Tuesday 30th August 2016
How proud we all felt listen to Katelin tell us her story and how we as Rotarians were part of that story.
National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) is a project that Ipswich North has support over many years. Well back in 2006 we received a nomination from a student at West Moreton Anglican College to attend the 2007 NYSF. President Richard Horne and his board approved the application and now the rest is history. 
This is what appears on Katelin's Linkedin page as part of her profile.
