Kajsa Souter, a Townsville Grammar School Alumni (2017) has received an invitation to study at Princeton University in New Jersey. The University received over 35,000 applications and accepted only 5.5% of these, making her invitation an outstanding achievement.
Kajsa is a determined and disciplined student and athlete. In 2017, while studying at Townsville Grammar School, she received the Townsville Junior Sportsperson Award from Mayor Jenny Hill, for her achievements in athletics, and in 2018 she was honoured to be one of Townsville’s 150 Torch bearers to carry the Queen's Baton along Flinders Street East in the lead up to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
“This outcome is a dream come true and I am very excited and honoured. I am very thankful for the opportunities Townsville Grammar School gave me to thrive both in and out of the classroom. The atmosphere within the School that celebrates excellence, in any form, fostered a wonderful education,” Kajsa Souter, TGS Alumni 2017.
