Home / News / Special Announcements / Karla Barton Award

Karla attended Wodonga High School from Year 7 – 12 from 1993 to 1998. She was a leader amongst her peers with her willingness to represent the school in a range of extra-curricular activities including music and drama. After completing Year 12, Karla commenced a university business degree in Melbourne studying tourism. Karla undertook a work-placement in the USA. It was whilst in Los Angeles that she died in a tragic car accident at the age of just 20 in 2001. This was a truly terrible time for the family, friends and the wider Wodonga High School community. The Barton family has kindly offered an annual scholarship for a Year 10/11 female to assist this worthy recipient to achieve their dreams and aspirations.
