Indigenous Scholar


Indigenous Medical Scholarship Holder

Indigenous Medical Scholarship holder Damian Rigney is the student we are supporting this year. Damian lives locally and is studying nursing at the University of South Australia in addition to his work with the Aboriginal Health Team at the Lyall McEwin hospital. Damian is given 6 hours a week release for studies, and though he is finding part time studies a challenge, he has achieved two credits for his two assignments in his first subject and is taking on two subjects next semester. Rotary members were impressed with Damian's maturity and delighted to be supporting his studies.
