A FOCUS on future aspirations and a commitment to the North East has secured two Albury High School graduates $1000 each towards their higher education.
Ashlee Bowen and Millie Medcraft, both 18, were recipients of the Women in Chamber’s Development scholarship.
The pair said they were honoured to received the award.
Women in Chamber deputy chair Mell Millgate said the students were the stand-outs from a field of six.
“They were really able to demonstrate to us what they wanted to achieve, as well as a clear commitment to their HSC studies,” she said.
“We are confident they will be able to continue the tradition of capable young women pursuing their interests.”
Miss Bowen will do a degree in environmental science management after receiving an early entry offer from CSU, and Miss Medcraft will pursue a career in midwifery or paramedics.
