Ruth came to Crown Institute from Massey High School.  She completed her studies with Crown in December 2013 and graduated with the Crown Certificate in International Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies.
While studying with Crown, Ruth completed her National Certificates in Travel Level 3 & 4 along with the STA Sales Certificate and STA Marketing Certificate. Ruth was a dedicated student who managed both study and work at the same time. Although tough at times, she believes it was all worth it to get to where she is now.
Part of Ruth’s dream in pursuing a career in Travel & Tourism involved her desire to explore the world and to experience the adventures travelling to new destinations offers. Her dream is certainly being realised as she is currently living and working at Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida in the United States.
Ruth was selected from a number of candidates for this exciting opportunity, and after a tense few months of interviews, Ruth proved that hard work and dedication do pay off in the end. Of her internship with Disneyworld, Ruth says “I am very excited for my new journey and would like to thank Crown Institute for offering me this chance to work for one of the biggest companies in the world!”
We’re proud of our graduates, and Ruth shows that with commitment and the right attitude, dreams really do come true!

Governance Committee Board Meeting

Crown’s governance committee board (GCB) held its inaugural meeting today. Over a fine dining lunch hosted by the Northern Club, Dr. Josephine Do introduced the stellar cast to staff members and then outlined the Institute’s aims and objectives. GCB members listened attentively, occasionally interjecting with clarifying and perceptive questions. Constructive advice flowed generously. From this positive and affirming meeting emerged a list of action points that staff will be working on over the next quarter.
