Bowater Hyundai announces Spirit of Adventure Trust scholarship

Written by Media Manager.

130312-33

Last week we attended the Nelson College for Girls assembly to announce another exciting, high achiever based scholarship.

Hyundai have got behind the Spirit of Adventure Trust as major sponsors and as a result of this all Hyundai franchises have the opportunity to be involved as well. Bowater Hyundai immediately set about finding out how best to offer this great opportunity to local students, and decided upon establishing a scholarship that met 50% of the total cost of a student's berth on the Spirit of Adventure Trust's training vessel, the tall ship "Spirit of New Zealand".

The school assembly was a great platform to get the girls excited about this wonderful and potentially life changing opportunity, with our Bowater Hyundai Sales Manager presenting a multi media presentation showcasing what the Spirit of New Zealand tallship is all about.

NCG Principal Cathy Ewing introducing addressing the students.

Every year the Spirit of Adventure Trust runs 25-29 voyages on their training ship the Spirit of New Zealand. This provides a life changing experience for between 1000 and 1200 young people aged 15-18 years, from a wide range of ethnic and social backgrounds throughout the country, to participate in their Youth Development programme.

The berth on one of these 10 day Training Adventures costs $1800, with the student expected to fund raise - and this is where Bowater Hyundai have come onboard to help. By fronting up with half of the cost, $900, this takes some of the pressure off the applicant having to raise what may seem like quite a lot of money in a short time frame.

We are pleased that we can help provide a wonderful, educational experience to the youth of our district - it is opportunities like this that can be quite life changing, and money need not be a factor holding a student back from applying. The fact that we have granted have of the cost makes the fund raising a little less daunting - afterall $1800 is a whole lot of sausage sizzles or car washes!

Good luck to the students - we look forward to following the journey!

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

Ross Prangnell. Bowater Hyundai General Sales Manager.

Ross Prangnell

Ross brings a wealth of experience to the team at Bowater Hyundai and has quickly established himself as a key component to the continued success of our busy showroom.

A recent returner to New Zealand after an extended contract consulting on overall operations to a large Vehicle Group in Papua New Guinea, Ross was very keen to branch out from a lifetime based in and around Auckland. The opportunity to join and lead the busy sales team of Bowater Hyundai in Nelson also offered the chance to embrace all of the great things that our wonderous region is famous for - a stunning landscape, a more relaxed way of life and a great boating community - something Ross is keen to get involved in again. 

Ross is very excited to get involved in our community, meet our customers and shine a light onto the great vehicle range Bowater Hyundai have to offer. Come down and meet him.
