Young Talent and Ambition Recognised
A new major prize was awarded for the first time at the Tauranga Boys’ College prizegiving on Tuesday night. Jimi Kameta received the Acorn Foundation Cashmore Family scholarship, with a value of $10,000 over two years. Jimi plans to study Biomedical Science next year at university and then go on to become a doctor and one day provide free medical treatment to those who cannot afford it.
Along with the award, Richard and Andrea Cashmore presented Jimi with a personally signed copy of Dr Lance O’Sullivan’s book The Good Doctor – a very appropriate gift given Jimi’s aspirations.
