Last night equestrian rider Samantha Felton was named Rothbury Life's Regional Scholarship winner 2017.
Samantha will receive $5,000 to help her pursue her dream of making New Zealand proud at the 2020 Olympic Games and 2022 World Equestrian Games.
Samantha says she will use the money to help fund her travels.
“There’s nothing more that I want in the world than to make our country proud at both the Olympic and World Equestrian Games and I’m very grateful to Rothbury for their support and for believing in me”, she said.
Samantha is 30th in the world eventing rankings and is a member of the New Zealand Future Potential Recognition Squad.
Rothbury Life has been giving out scholarships since 2007 and Samantha will be the insurance broker’s eleventh recipient. The Regional Scholarships are part of the wider AMP Scholarship Programme and offered by a number of Adviser Businesses in the AMP Financial Adviser Network.
Rothbury Life’s Chief Executive Officer Jon O’Connor says, “These scholarships are just one of the ways we give back to the communities we work in. The Rothbury team also supports a lot of great work being done by non-profit organisations across the country.”
“We’re very committed to the scholarship programme and so proud of all our winners and what they’ve achieved, and continue to achieve.”
