Ninth year of Pak n’ Save Pukekohe $12,000 schol­ar­ship for stu­dent

Franklin County News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

For the ninth year in a row, the owner of Pukekohe Pak n’ Save will give away thou­sands of dol­lars to sup­port a Franklin stu­dent achieve their dreams of go­ing to univer­sity when their fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion would oth­er­wise make it dif­fi­cult.

Pukekohe Pak n’ Save owner Nigel Ol­lett will give away a $12,000 study schol­ar­ship to one lucky Franklin stu­dent.

‘‘It is a real priv­i­lege to be able to pro­vide fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance to one of our many im­pres­sive young peo­ple in Franklin so they can at­tend a Univer­sity of their choice when their eco­nomic situ- ation would make them think twice about whether they study or not,’’ Ol­lett said.

‘‘We have some in­cred­i­bly tal­ented and com­mu­nity fo­cused young adults in Franklin and the schol­ar­ship com­mit­tee and I are con­tin­u­ally im­pressed by the can­di­dates that ap­ply.’’

The schol­ar­ship will be awarded to the can­di­date who is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing gen­uine fi­nan­cial hard­ship which would limit their op­por­tu­nity to study. In ad­di­tion to their fi­nan­cial chal­lenge, it is ex­pected the suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cant will be a well-rounded in­di­vid­ual who con­trib­utes pos­i­tively to the Franklin Com­mu­nity and pos­sesses the at­tributes, lead­er­ship, skills and per­son­al­ity that will ben­e­fit the peo­ple of Franklin.

The schol­ar­ship is open to year 13 stu­dents who have at­tended Onewhero Area School, Tuakau Col­lege, Pukekohe High School, Pukekohe Chris­tian School, Waiuku Col­lege, Wes­ley Col­lege, Eden Chris­tian Academy, and ACG Strathal­lan Col­lege for the last five years and re­side in the former Franklin District Coun­cil bound­aries. It is worth up to $4000 each year for three years while the suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cant com­pletes their se­lected un­der­grad­u­ate stud­ies at a univer­sity of their choice within New Zealand.

Schol­ar­ship ap­pli­ca­tions close Novem­ber 10.

Ap­pli­ca­tions packs with are avail­able from Pak n’ Save Pukekohe.
