Jack Dixon, 18, has been awarded a Southern Hearing Charitable Trust scholarship to assist him financially with his study at Lincoln University. Having received a cochlear implant at the age of 11, he fashioned an impressive leadership, academic and sporting record during his five years as a boarder at St Bede’s College. He was a prefect in 2016.
