South Africa student awarded first Bursary Award

Success in the making! A leading international property company has honored a Christel House South Africa (CHSA) 12th grader with its very first scholarship. Lauren D. was awarded the recognition from Growthpoint Properties through Growsmart, the company’s school literacy initiative launched in 2010. The bursary will fund and support Lauren as she begins her post-secondary studies at Stellenbosch University, one of Africa’s leading universities. Coming from a very poor family, Lauren recognizes that the opportunity to go to college is the next step in an amazing journey of hope. “Lauren is a natural leader and mentor to several classmates,” says Nicky Sheridan, CEO of CHSA. “This is a well-deserved honor and you can bet your bottom dollar, she will grasp the opportunity with both hands and excel not just in university but in the commercial world thereafter as well.”
