Lionel Bowen Scholarship Recipients

At last week's Council meeting we presented the Lionel Bowen Scholarship for 2010. For the first time we not only have two winners but they're twins. And, as they are both studying for the same degree at the University of New South Wales, we've really got a triple first.

The two Lionel Bowen Scholars for 2010 are Aryetta Pazpinis and Deon Pazpinis, who both live at Pagewood and are studying for Bachelor of Industrial Design degrees at the Kensington campus.

Like twins, they couldn't be separated for the Lionel Bowen Scholarship. Both Aryetta and Deon have a real passion for their chosen degree and in their application forms they detailed how, through industrial design, they hope to make our world a little better – and a little more functional.

Lionel Bowen's daughter Margaret was along to present the scholarships that honour the public life of a great Australian – a man who represented his community in local, state and national governments retiring after service as Deputy Prime Minister of Australia. We were also pleased that Margaret's son Matthew came along, representing the third generation of a distinguished local family.
