Scholarship up for grabs for Armadale student.
GRAEME and Michelle Hill are jumping on board with the Youth Australia League to fund a scholarship for a local City of Armadale student.
The Dome Armadale and Kelmscott owners and Byford residents heard about the YAL through friends at Business Armadale and knew it was an initiative they wanted to get on board with.
“We wanted to support kids that need a hand and further educate kids in need,” Mr Hill said.
“I think it’s important to keep that community spirit going, trying to create something. You get a great atmosphere if you start to give back and be a part of it.”
YAL scholarships are offered to young Australians experiencing hardship due to social circumstances, disability or distance.
The Dome Kelmscott and Armadale Lower Secondary scholarship/bursary of $2000 per annum will support fulltime secondary education (Years 7, 8 and 9) for a City of Armadale resident at an accredited public or private institution.
Mrs Hill said YAL had done a good job giving kids a hand up.
She said she and her husband, who were previously farmers in Meckering, were lucky to be in a position to be able to help.
“We’d been talking about it for a long time,” she said.
“We’d been looking for something to get involved with to help the community.”
