Trust’s scholars awarded
Recipients of the Waipawa Building Society Scholarship Trust for Central Hawke’s Bay residents have been announced for 2018.
The Waipawa Building Society Scholarship Trust was established in 1990 by the Waipawa County Permanent Building and Investment Society. As custodian trustee, the council is responsible for allocating funds. The council is represented by Mayor Alex Walker, councillor Ian Sharp and chief executive Monique Davidson with representatives from Waipawa Lions Club and Waipukurau Rotary Club.
“The opportunity to support our local young people to thrive gives me great pride,” says Mayor Walker.
“As in previous years, this year’s successful applicants are very worthy recipients and we wish them all the very best in their studies and hope to see them bring their future skills back to Central Hawke’s Bay.”
Recipients: Bree White, Breanna Winchester, Esther Jenkinson, Jack Ward and Maggie Peacock. Applications will open again in late 2019.
