SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday March 14 2017 15 ACHIEVERS Scholarship boost for student GRATEFUL: Sarah Lockhart says the $5000 Ravensdown Hugh Williams Scholarship will go a long way towards helping her complete her degree. ​ LINCOLN University student Sarah Lockhart is this year’s recipient of the Ravensdown Hugh Williams Scholarship. Lockhart, 19, is currently in her second year of study towards a Bachelor of Agricultural Commerce. She said the $5000 scholarship money would go a long way in helping her complete her degree. “Everyone knows the expenses at university can add up, especially when you’re living away from home, so it was pretty awesome to receive the phone call telling me that most of my fees would be paid by the scholarship,” she said. The scholarship was established to commemorate the service and dedication of the late Hugh Williams, who was a Ravensdown director from 1987-2000. One scholarship is awarded each year and the successful applicant receives $5000 for each year of study remaining. In addition, the recipient is offered the opportunity of paid holiday work at Ravensdown. Lockhart was encouraged to apply for the scholarship by a friend who was a former recipient and said it was attractive because of the opportunities it provided. Originally from a small sheep and beef farm in Feilding, she chose to head south to attend university because she wanted an adventure. “I went to high school in Palmerston North and so Massey would have been the natural choice, especially because my dad is a senior lecturer there. But I wanted to experience new things, so I’m really glad I made the decision to come down to Lincoln.” Ravensdown director Bruce Wills said awarding these scholarships was about developing future leaders in the agricultural sector. “We want to ensure there is plenty of support available to budding agricultural professionals,” he said. the Entry fee: $60 Includes a bottle of water and first drink ** at Prize Giving sunday 26 th march 2017 GOLF TOURNAMENT Check-in 8:30am Shotgun start at 10am in four balls $30 green fees for a practice round from 21 st to 25 th open Terrace Downs’ major tournament accommodating 100+ players with prize table over $5000! 18-hole Stableford Tournament open to all, men and ladies * with an official 18 hole NZGA Handicap Spot Prizes also awarded on the day for Best gross, Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin * Ladies’ division subject to minimum number of entries ** First drink includes tap beer, or soft drink Entries close 22 nd March Book today!
