Bank gives schol­ar­ship to lucky stu­dents

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

MIN­DEN’S Arielle Wil­son and Too­goolawah’s Daryl Har­rip have been awarded this year’s Lowood & Fern­vale Com­mu­nity Bank Branch Schol­ar­ship.

The schol­ar­ship is awarded to first-time ter­tiary stu­dents whose fi­nan­cial cir­cum­stances might mean that a univer­sity de­gree is out of their reach.

Chair­man of Lowood & Fern­vale Com­mu­nity Bank Branch Keith Manz said both Arielle and Daryl were de­serv­ing re­cip­i­ents.

“Arielle and Daryl have demon­strated a com­mit­ment to their study and a pas­sion for learn­ing,” Mr Manz said.

“I would hate to think that a local young person like Arielle or Daryl would be un­able to start a higher ed­u­ca­tion be­cause of the fi­nan­cial costs.

“This is an­other way that our Com­mu­nity Bank com­pany commits to build­ing stronger com­mu­ni­ties.”

The Lowood & Fern­vale Com­mu­nity Bank Schol­ar­ship is part of the Bendigo and Ade­laide Bank Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram, with more than 40 Com­mu­nity Bank branches and other part­ners tak­ing part from across Aus­tralia.
