Digital forensics and building will be the focus of WelTec students, Patricia Ramsden and Junior Preston, who were this year’s recipients of the Hutt City Council Centennial Scholarships presented by Mayor Ray Wallace.
“They are Hutt students who have worked hard to gain entry to their chosen courses and we are very pleased to support them in their studies,” Mayor Wallace said when presenting the scholarships at Weltec today (February14).
“We are honoured as a city to work alongside Weltec in supporting young people from the Hutt who are starting out on their chosen careers,” he said.
Junior Preston is following in the footsteps of two of his uncles who are builders through a certificate course in carpentry with the intention of becoming a builder’s apprentice.
Patricia Ramsden was an A plus scholar at Weltec last year as an IT student and this year has enrolled in the Bachelors programme for Information Technology. Her long term aspiration is to specialise in digital forensics.
“The scholarships are both hard earned by two motivated students determined to succeed,” he said. “We hope the awards will assist them on their journey.”
