Nathan wins indigenous scholarship
THIS is one very talented local.
For starters, Toormina High School Year 12 student Nathan Smith has just received an EAA Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School Scholarship.
The scholarship will enable him to complete his school studies and support him in his pursuit of a career in engineering at university.
Toormina High principal Liz Donnan said Nathan was a highly regarded member of the school’s student body and was working extremely hard to meet the expectations he had set for himself. He was studying English, Engineering Studies, Maths, Maths Extension, Physics and PDHPE and had represented the school in athletics, basketball, cricket, rugby league, rugby union, netball, AFL and cross country.
He was a foundation member of the school’s Ten Percent on Top Club, a program instigated to acknowledge the hard work of Aboriginal students achieving at a high academic level.
“Nathan has set his standards high and endeavours to take every opportunity that is presented to him,” Ms Donnan said. “He has been selected to attend the University of NSW winter and summer school programs.”
