PROMISING FUTURE: Moura teen Jared Semple was presented a $2000 QMEA scholarship from Minister for Employment, Skills and Mining Stirling Hinchliffe and Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive Micheal Roche last week.

A CAREER in the mining industry is in Jared Semple's blood.

Now a scholarship from the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy will help the Moura teen achieve his dreams.

"Almost my whole family is in the industry," Jared said. "It's a big part of the community."

The Year 12 student is still deciding which career path he will take but whichever way he goes he knows he will end up at a mine.

"It still all depends. I'm looking at doing diesel fitting but if I do really good in my QCS I might look at going straight into engineering," he said.

Jared has been awarded a $2000 QMEA Vocational Education and Training Pathways Scholarship.

The scholarship endeavours to help students with a promising career in the resources sector.

Jared was only one of six students across the state to be presented with the scholarship.

He has completed a Certificate 1 in Resources Infrastructure and Operations with QMEA, work experience at Anglo American Metallurgical Coal and attended QMEA programs like energy for the future.

Moura State High School teacher Norah Parsons was also awarded the QMEA Teacher Recognition Award.

QMEA director Roger Atkins said Ms Parsons had been instrumental in building relationships between her school and the resources sector to provide career pathways for students.
