Four students receive scholarships
FOUR young Maryborough High School students will be added to their school’s honour list after being awarded scholarships.
The Year 8 students had to undergo an application process, with a written statement from themselves and their former Year 7 teachers, to be awarded the scholarships.
Academic scholarships were awarded to Megan Kaufman and Nicholas Young.
A sporting scholarship was awarded to Jayden Zampech and a cultural scholarship to James Tennant.
Maryborough High School deputy principal Leanne Muston said the awards were introduced in 2009 and were funded by the school’s P and C association.
“The scholarship includes the cost of the School Resource Scheme Fee for Year 8 which is $150, entry into national academic competitions and their names added to the honour roll,” Ms Muston said.
“The applications were considered by a panel of three – the deputy principal, Year 8 co-ordinator and P and C president.
“Students are commended for the high quality applications submitted, which included positive endorsement from their primary school principal.
“It is anticipated that these students will continue to strive to excel.”
