Cameron Murdoch of Hutt Valley College in Wellington has accepted a boarding scholarship to attend Nelson College,  a nationally-renowned all boys school in Nelson.  The scholarship will cover one-half of the boarding fee, and awarded to a talented, academically-minded middle distance runner who will become a member of the National Academy of Distance Running. Murdoch is one of the top junior distance runners in New Zealand and won a bronze medal in the U16 division at the New Zealand Road Championships in Auckland on October 17. It is expected that future middle distance scholarship will be awarded annually at Nelson College and perhaps other area Colleges. Watch this site for future scholarship offers.
