Pat Jones Bursary for Sixth Year Student

Management and staff at Oaklands Community College were delighted this week to receive news that Leaving Certificate student Tom Mangan is among one of the two students to receive the 2021 Pat Jones Student Bursary Award from Croí Laighean Credit Union.

Tom received delivery of his Croí Laighean Credit Union Box containing the news that he was a successful recipient of this year’s Bursary on Friday April 30th.

As one of the two overall winners Tom received €6,000 towards his Third Level Education over 3 years.

The Pat Jones Bursary is in its ninth year, supporting students on their Third Level journey.

Mr. Jones, who was a former chair of the Credit Union’s Board Oversight Committee, sadly passed away in 2012. To honour the memory of Pat Jones, and his appreciation and value for education, the Bursary was introduced in 2013.

The management and staff of Oaklands Community College are very proud of Tom and his success in this year’s bursary award, following on in the footsteps of past pupil Leanne Mallen who was a recipient of the Bursary last year, in 2020.

Our thanks to Croí Laighean Credit Union for their support of young people in the region in their future academic pursuits.
