Rachael Cox of Otago received a CF Achiever’s Award for her achievements in music and the dramatic arts.
This year Rachael (17) was named a drama and music prefect at Logan Park High School – with the aim of encouraging others to pursue their creative dreams. She has played the clarinet for eight years and singing for five. In addition Rachael received an Excellence endorsement in these subjects and also overall for NCEA. She plans to go to University to study for an arts degree next year and will put her CF Achiever’s Award towards the fees.
Angus Drumm (17) of Auckland was able to gain an Excellence endorsement for both Level 1 and Level 2 NCEA in spite of some of the challenges that CF cast his way including a hospitalisation in 2016 and adding another two treatments to his daily routine taking the total time up to an hour and a half twice a day. Angus plans to use his Award to help fund a six month student university exchange – in the US or Europe.
Joseph Voyce’s mother, Janet Camplin, nominated her son for a CF Achiever’s Award in sport for reaching his goals in body building after competing in the NABBA South Island champs in 2014 when he placed 2nd and for winning first place in his category at the NABBA champs in 2016. Along with managing CF, Joe (26) also managed a gym in Dunedin before deciding to move to Auckland this year. Joe continues to pursue his goals in health and sport and plans to use his Award for an overseas trip in October.
