Rotary scholarship to future doctor in Centre

The 2012 Rotary Club of Alice Springs - John Hawkins Memorial Scholarship has been awarded to Sam Heckathorn (pictured), the 2010 Dux of OLSH College.

He has this year started a Bachelor of Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne with the intention of becoming a general practitioner in Central Australia.
Chairperson of the JHMS committee, Catherine Maughan, says  the award was given because of "Sam’s obvious intelligence, exemplary community service record and his commitment to invest his future in Central Australia".
The scholarship is valued at $18,000 paid in six equal installments over three years.

The Rotary Club of Alice Springs encourages local students intending to commence tertiary study in 2013 to apply for next year’s scholarship, says Ms Maughan.

"Money raised from the annual Rotary Club of Alice Springs Melbourne Cup sweep helps fund the scholarship."
