Students shine bright

Some of Lismores brightest students have been given $5,000 scholarships to help their studies at Southern Cross University this year. Pictured with Mayor Merv King are (l to r) SCU post-graduate student Nicholas Sadgrove, who received a $5000 scholarship for research into Council projects, Jenna Fletcher from Lismore High School, Daniella Zanette from Trinity College and Alister Hobbs from Kadina High School. The three graduated from school last year and are the 2007 beneficiaries of the Councils Mayoral Scholarship Fund. Cr King said it gave him great pleasure to see such talented young people growing up in our community and these scholarships help to keep them close to home.
