In 2018 Renae Kretschmer made the move from Wirrabara to St Ann's College in North Adelaide while studying at the University of Adelaide.
"I had a good education at Booleroo Centre District School, became interested in science subjects early on, and that led me to study animal science at the University of Adelaide," she said.
Renae was awarded a Regional Science & Engineering Scholarship by the Playford Trust in 2018, which provided assistance with college fees and created a smooth transition to Adelaide for both Renae and her family.
"My move to Adelaide in 2018 was a challenge because of my big involvement in the family farm," she said.
"The Playford Trust Scholarship, which was an honour to receive, gave me confidence that the move was the right decision, as finances had been a great concern."

"St Ann's College and its welcoming community of people experiencing similar changes helped me adapt to a new lifestyle right from day one."
Thomas de la Perrelle completed his senior schooling at St Joseph's School in Port Lincoln and is currently living at St Ann's College while in his second year of mechanical engineering at the University of Adelaide.
Since moving to Adelaide, Thomas has been supported by the St Ann's College community. The support provided him with the opportunity to take on several leadership roles at St Ann's, coaching both the college band and hockey team as well as offering pastoral care as a residential tutor.
In 2019 Thomas was awarded the Chartwells/St Ann's College/Playford Residential Scholarship.
"I am extremely grateful to have been selected for this scholarship," he said.
"It means a great deal to not only myself, but my family and extended family that I should be recognised in this way."
"This financial assistance will allow me to focus more on my studies throughout the year."
"I am sure that this focus will hold me in good stead as I continue my bachelor and move into the workforce, so I thank the college for choosing to invest in my future."
