Miss Bowler’s mother, Mrs Rita Bowler (nee Kemp) was awarded her agricultural science diploma from one of CSU’s predecessor institutions, the Riverina College of Advanced Education. Mrs Bowler’s father, Mr Jim Kemp was also awarded an agricultural qualification from the Wagga Wagga Agricultural College.
 
“My grandfather passed away earlier this year at the age of 80 so I will attend my graduation with my grandmother and my mother, who helps run a mixed farming property at Holbrook,” said Miss Bowler.
 
“Given my family’s history with Charles Sturt University, I am very excited to receive my degree.”
 
During her study, Miss Bowler was among a group of agricultural science students to visit Vietnam in 2011 as part of the University’s focus on international experience for students. Read more on CSU News here
