The YH Committee are proud to announce Chris Hewitt (2013) as the winner of the 2018 Young Haleians' Endeavour Award.
A unique opportunity for a member of the Young Haleian community to be nominated (or self-nominate) for an award that provides financial support up to the value of five thousand dollars. This financial support is designed to enable Young Haleians to pursue their future goals – no matter their field of pursuit.
The award recognises Chris' outstanding accomplishments, future ambitions and endeavours in his field, being Aerospace Engineering.
Chris commenced studies at UWA moving to Melbourne to complete his Masters’ in Aerospace engineering at RMIT. He achieved a GPA of 3.9 (out of 4.0) and was the elected Student Representative for the Masters’ program. He was also awarded the 2018 Boeing Industry Scholarship. His Masters’ Thesis in rocket nozzle efficiency was recently accepted into the Australian International Aerospace Congress to be published and presented at their annual conference in 2019.
The funds will contribute to software engineering courses separate to his degree, further develop his skills and CV and in addition assist partially with re-allocation costs to Melbourne and overseas if opportunities arise. Chris was well liked at Hale, making the most of the opportunity the school provides, he embodies the criteria of the award as well as Hale's values and we are very excited to follow his progress going forward.
