WelCom March 2018:
Suzanne Aubert knew the importance of tertiary education for young people. In 1992 – the Centennial Year of the Sisters of Compassion – the congregation established The Suzanne Aubert Tertiary Scholarship Grant.
Since then, many students have benefitted from the grant and have gained national recognition in their respective professional careers. The grant is open to secondary college students within the Archdiocese of Wellington and the Palmerston North Diocese to assist with tertiary education.
Sr Lusi Raratini dolc said the grant committee was overwhelmed last year by the ‘good heart and enthusiasm’ of all applicants who applied for the Suzanne Aubert Scholarship.
‘Their academic work, commitment to their school environment and parishes were inspirational. Selecting who was to receive the scholarships was very difficult,’ Sr Lusi said.
‘We know these recipients will achieve their respective goals and will be a credit not only to their whānau but also to their faith commitments, colleges and teachers.
Sisters of Compassion – Ngā Whaea O Pūaroha – congratulate the following students who were each awarded a 2017 Suzanne Aubert tertiary scholarship.
