Governor’s Leadership Foundation Keith Fulton Memorial Scholarship
Since 2004, CBB has been proud to offer a paid scholarship to community sector employees in South Australia who are keen to develop leadership skills through the GLF – a progressive and unique initiative that focuses future leaders on complex issues facing our state (offered through the Leaders Institute of South Australia).
CBB supports staff from organisations who are unable to afford such a premium program through the provision of a full scholarship. Applications to participate in the GLF are administered by the Leaders Institute of South Australia. Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 GLF scholarship:
Scott is the head of business development at the National Heart Foundation. He had a massive heart attack at the age of 28 whilst playing touch football and nearly died. His recovery was long and he still has some continuing health issues that require him to take much medication. After his heart attack he spent seven years volunteering for the National Heart Foundation assisting it with its fund raising efforts. He was later offered a role in business development in SA and now due to a restructure, has this role across Australia. Scott is passionate about improving the community’s awareness of the signs of heart attack and heart disease. He is also a volunteer on the Adelaide Business Collective which aims to incorporate and investigate the economic benefit of implementing a Business Improvement District within the Adelaide CBD.

Mel is the Executive Officer of Southern Volunteering, a very small NFP that provides volunteer support services to volunteers and volunteer involving organisations across the southern suburbs and the Fleurieu Peninsula. The organisation itself has approximately 150 volunteers. Mel has been with the organisation for three years. Mel has also been the Vice President of the Australasian Association of Manager of Volunteers and involved with an Alzheimer’s support group.
Mel immigrated from the UK in 2013. Prior to this she worked in the volunteering sector in the UK but also formed a Trust Fund in memory of her brother who died at a young age from a rare form of cancer. Lots of events were held and a book was published with funding of over $50,000 being provided to a children’s hospice and other causes in his memory.
