Hamilton students among new Hillary Scholars

Sixteen students from Hamilton are among this year’s Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship recipients.

The University of Waikato awarded more than 50 scholarships to students who have been recognised as being high achievers academically and also excelling in sport or the creative and performing arts.

Established in 2005, the Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship provides recipients with full course fees while studying at the University of Waikato, comprehensive support for their academic, sporting and/or arts activities and additional support in leadership and personal development.

Among the Hamilton scholarship recipients are former Hamilton Boys’ High School students Sam Franicevic (music and creative technologies), Che Bunce (football), Vincent Harris (badminton and softball), Alexander Bardoul (rowing), Denzel Ieremia (golf), Caleb Shepherd (rowing) and Matthew Wallbank (cricket); former Waikato Diocesan School for Girls students Madison Farrant (track and road cycling), Michaela Barker (graphic design) and Hannah Fielding (basketball); former St Pauls’ Collegiate students Grace Namana (netball) and Paul Newton-Jackson (music composition); former St John’s College students Caleb Coffey (theatre), Conor Maxwell (theatre), and Conor Gyde (athletics); former Hillcrest High School student Vincent Owen (graphic design); former Melville High School student Cian Gardner (theatre) and former Nga Taiatea Wharekura student Kaharau Keogh (kapa haka, ngā manu kōrero and ngā pūkōrero).
