Richard Williams Scholarship

At the end of our Anzac assembly, we also took the opportunity to celebrate the successful recipients of the Richard Williams Scholarship. This scholarship is now in its fourth year, and we continue to be grateful for the special relationship that we have with members of the scholarship board.

Richard Williams was an unsung, local hero. He worked tirelessly for others, always putting them before himself. After his passing in 2020, some of his close friends, who he had been friends with since they were students together at Mordialloc College, got together to create the Richard Williams Scholarship in his memory. This year there were nearly fifty applications from across the school community. The Scholarship Fund committee in consultation with Mordialloc College selected six students to be awarded the scholarship to further support each student’s studies and/or pursuit of a particular interest.

Members of the Richard Williams Scholarship board were in attendance, including Lindy Langshaw (Richard’s partner), David Downie, and Ivor Donohue from the Mordialloc College Alumni Association. David, Lindy, and Ivor presented certificates and awards to the following recipients: Ben Woolridge, Evan Susil, Roy Zhu, Kai Lynch, Madison Sinn and Sam Heazlewood.

Thank you again David, Lindy and Ivor for being such an important part of our Mordialloc College community.
