Funding supports promising Selwyn students

BIG FUTURE: Lincoln High School scholarship recipients Lucy Turner and Lincoln Roper.

Six year 13 students have received a tertiary scholarship from the district council to help fund their future studies.

Lincoln High School students Lucy Turner and Lincoln Roper, Ellesmere College’s Ella McClure and Jack Dudley, and Darfield High’s Abigail Cider and Rachael Phillipson, each received Selwyn District Council tertiary scholarship awards.

Lucy said she was overwhelmed to be announced as a recipient for the scholarship.

“I was so honoured to be rewarded for my contribution and hard work over my time at Lincoln High School,” she said.

Lucy plans to study a Bachelor of Sport at Canterbury University.

She looks to one day to be involved in high performance sport, influencing others, as well as becoming a top athlete.

Lincoln will study for a Bachelor of Commerce (global business) at Lincoln University, and hopes to pursue a Master of Business (global management and marketing). He aims to become involved in the banking sector or own his own business.

Lincoln was looking forward to university.

“The money from this scholarship will be beneficial as I enter my studies next year, although this is only a part of what I have received,” he said.

The money from the scholarships will mainly go towards course fees, stationery, hall fees and other necessities for the students.
