We are pleased to announce that Ellie George has been elected to the position of Bell Ringer for 2019.
Elected by the most recent Scholar cohort, the Bell Ringer is a prestigious appointment awarded to the Scholar who has most consistently demonstrated the Tuckwell attributes, and who best represents what it means to be a Tuckwell Scholar.
As Bell Ringer, Ellie has the opportunity to provide leadership within her year of service and can represent the program on formal occasions.
The position title stems from the Tuckwell handbell used in the 'ringing in' ceremony at the annual Commencement Dinner. The Bell Ringer rings the Tuckwell Bell once for each new Scholar to welcome them to the Tuckwell community.
Ellie is currently studying an ANU Flexible Double Degree (Arts, Social Sciences, Business, Science) and is a resident of Bruce Hall. She moved to Canberra from Tamworth, NSW, and was a student of McCarthy Catholic College.
Ellie joins an impressive list of Scholars elected to the position:
2014 Mr Matthew Jacob
2015 Ms Mary Parker
2016 Mr Max Moffat
2017 Mr Sahibjeet Bains
2018 Mr Ryan Mannes
