Scholarship award


Wakatipu High School leaver Chester Rosie has won an award from Queenstown’s Returned and Services’ Association.

Chester, pictured with president Lyall McGregor, has received a $1000 David Geddes Memorial Scholarship to put towards his surveying studies at Otago University next year.

The scholarship, established by the local RSA and the Geddes family, recognises the late Dave Geddes’ contribution to the branch, which he helped relaunch in 2005, and the community.

Chester, 18, says he’s been active in field hockey, done well academically and also taken leadership roles at the school.
