Meet the first round of 2017 Young, Black and Deadly scholarship winners

Recently, we invited our scholarship winners and their families to an afternoon tea at our Woolloongabba clinic. For those scholarships winners and their families who could attend, it was a great opportunity to award the scholarship winners with a cheque, a picture of them with their families and the opportunity for our CEO and Board of Directors to learn more about this years’ winners.

Young, Black and Deadly scholarships are awarded to young, black and deadly people in our local community who are excelling in the education and training, arts and sports sectors. The scholarships enable students who are in financial need, the opportunity to attend school, training and/or university, undertake professional development courses, purchase equipment, pay for travel, accommodation, course or exhibition fees etc.

This year’s winners are:

  • Merryn Trescott – the Arts – Drama, Videography, Visual Art and Choreography
  • Stevie O’Chin – the Arts – Visual Arts/aspiring Art teacher
  • Billy Bougoure – Sports – Tennis
  • Bianca Cook – Academic – Maths and Media Studies
  • Toni Paulson – Sports – Boxing
  • Kaleb Gray – Sports – Boxing
  • Indigo Leon-Painter – the Arts – Dance

We will be sharing more about each of our winners over the coming weeks!

Note: the next round of Young, Black and Deadly Scholarships for 2017 will open in September. More info will be released closer to the date! If you know a deadly person 25 years or younger, who has had their health check in the past 12 months, encourage them to apply!

Congratulations to all of our winners!!!
