Bill Denton Scholarship joint winners Sheri Streilein and Nickee Freeman with Resource GV chairman Greg Toll and co-sponsor Ellwaste Waste and Recycling Services operations manager Stephen Elliott.

St Augustine’s College sustainability educator Nickee Freeman has won the annual Bill Denton Scholarship for waste management.

Ms Freeman shares the award with Campaspe Shire educator Sheri Streilein.

The scholarship honours Bill Denton who was a long-serving member of Goulburn Valley Regional Waste Management Group and Campaspe Shire environment manager who died in 2011.

Resource GV executive officer Nick Nagle said the annual scholarship encouraged community members who were seeking a career in waste management and helped them learn more about recycling and renewable energy.

“We are pleased to announce Sheri and Nickee as joint winners of the scholarship as their applications best represented the objectives of the scholarship and they will help promote best practice waste management approaches,’’ Mr Nagle said.

Nickee will undertake a Bachelor of Applied Science Honours Course by research at Charles Sturt University and will use the scholarship to complete a local networking project.
