It’s been a double success for last year’s Mark Ashford Scholarship recipient Damien Bell.

Damien, an adult with CF from Te Awamutu, has been announced as the recipient of the Wintec Gordon Chesterman Scholarship. Damien is halfway through his three year degree, studying towards a Bachelor of Applied Technology at Wintec in Hamilton.

The scholarship is awarded based on academic merit, personal character and community involvement. You can read more about Damien’s win on the Wintec website.

Congratulations Damien, we wish you all the best for the rest of your studies.
