The Mangawhai Zonta Club has announced Jacqueline Busby as the recipient of the 2017 Second Chance Study Award.
This is the second year the award has been offered to any woman residing in the Mangawhai, Kaiwaka, Maungaturoto or Bream Bay area who is furthering their educational studies.
“Jacqueline is a most deserving recipient who was chosen from a very competitive slate of candidates after a rigorous selection process.
She is in her second year of nursing studies at NorthTec and is interested in pursuing a career in paramedics,” said club member, Sue Poynter.
The $2,500 included with the award will be largely used to assist with transport costs to enable her to attend placements and course time in Whangarei.
The award is made possible through fundraising events such as the Zonta midwinter ball.
This year it will be held on July 29 with entertainment provided from the Renegades band, and tickets will be available from Bammas and the Mangawhai Pharmacy.
