On Thursday 7th June, Year 8 student Briella De Been-Hall was awarded the Doris Price Memorial Scholarship of $200.
The scholarship will be used to support Briella with education costs or equipment. A certificate of congratulations was also presented.
Mrs Price passed away in December, 2009, and the award was presented in her memory, by Doris' daughter Sandra Jardine.
As a member of the Mildura Deaf Auxillary for 40 years, Mrs. Price voluntarily raised money for the Victorian School or Deaf Children in Melbourne, and also for hearing impaired students in Mildura and surrounding areas. the members assisted students and their families by providing educational and other supports. During that time, members presented a scholarship each year to a local hearing challenged child, to assist with their education. After her passing, Mrs. Price's family decided to re-establish this tradition.
