A CHARLEVILLE woman has received her eduction degree from USQ this month.

Jessica Schier was among 630 students who became graduates after officially completing their Business, Education, Law and Arts degrees on April 7.

The 26-year-old woman was working as a receptionist at a law firm but was passionate about teaching.

Ms Schier moved to Highfields to work as a primary school teacher and studied on campus at Toowoomba's USQ.

USQ Vice-Chancellor Professor Janet Verbyla acknowledged the significant achievement of the University's newest alumni.

"Well done! It is an honour to celebrate our graduates' great success amongst many proud family members and friends,” she said.

"Today is the culmination of many years of hard work, and this achievement will be the foundation upon which our graduates will build their future.

"I wish them all the best as they embark on careers and further education.”
