Scholarship for biker
A former Verdon College pupil and top BMX biker has been awarded a full fees scholarship from the University of Waikato.
Josef Winders was one of six South Islanders to be awarded a Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship, which provides recipients with full course fees while they study at Waikato, as well as specialist mentoring and leadership programmes.
The scholarship is awarded to academic high achievers who also excel at sport or in creative arts.
