Scholarship helps student with studies

Scholarship helps student with studies in natural resources engineering


Former Matamata College student Russell Wenzlick has won a Waikato Regional Council scholarship to help with his university studies.

Russell was supported by his parents, Steve and Louise, when he was presented with the Roger Harris Scholarship at Friday’s Waihou Piako Catchment Committee meeting.

The scholarship, which was established in 1995, is valued at $6000. It is presented annually to students whose families live in the Waihou Valley Scheme area, and who are studying engineering or resource management, especially in river and catchment management.

The scholarship was set up to mark Roger Harris, chief engineer of the Hauraki Catchment Board between 1959 and 1983, for his contribution towards the development and implementation of the flood scheme.

Russell Wenzlick is in his third year studying for a Bachelor of Natural Resource Engineering at Canterbury University.

Councillor Stu Husband, who presented the award, said the committee was thrilled to see someone with an interest in natural resource engineering. Russell is completing a project on the reliability of Auckland’s water supply.

“We wish you well with your pursuit of a career in the civil and natural resources engineering industry,” Mr Husband said.

Russell Wenzlick thanked the council and committee for their support.
