Tomago Sponsors the Port Stephens Mayoral Academic Scholarship Program
TOMAGO HAS ONCE AGAIN SUPPORTED THE PORT STEPHENS MAYORAL ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.
This year’s scholarship recipient is Justine Bull, 18, who has just started a Bachelor of Engineering (with Honours) degree at the University of Newcastle.
Justine, who attended Merewether High School, was selected after an interview process involving several dozen applicants.
“I made an application and then had to go for an interview”.
Justine has a love of science, maths and problem-solving and has been described as a person who is humble, intuitive and independent.
Not surprisingly, the high achiever also recognises the need for hard work to reach her goals, an admirable equality in anyone aspiring to bigger and better things in life. Still finding her way around the University of Newcastle campus, Justine has already set herself some impressive goals.
“I’m hoping to do a PhD once I graduate and that, hopefully, will take me into industrial research,” she said.
Tomago Aluminium staff member Amanda, who attended the Port Stephens Mayoral Scholarship Program presentation, said she was happy to see Justine accept her scholarship and congratulate her on behalf of the company,” Amanda said.
“Tomago Aluminium’s support of the Mayoral Scholarship Program is not only another way for us to support the community but also has longer-term benefits.”
Tomago Aluminium has been a strong supporter of the Port Stephens Mayoral Scholarship Program since 2013.
