Hutt Valley High School’s ARL Academic Excellence Scholarship was this year awarded to year 13 student, Madhuri Shenoy. Ms Shenoy, a resident of the Hutt Valley all her life, is delighted to be the recipient of this award. “This scholarship will help pay for my course fees at university and reducing my loan. It will relieve some of the financial burden so I can focus on the study and university itself” she said.
There were some top candidates for the Scholarship this year but Ms Shenoy’s all-round excellence; her personal qualities, her exceptional academic results, and her contribution to the school community made her an outstanding applicant.
Leaving home for the first time, Ms Shenoy is heading off to Otago University next year to study first year Health Science with a goal of getting into medicine. “I am excited about going to University and starting the next stage in my life, which has been made easier thanks to ARL Lawyers” she said.
