Matthew Kowalewski is the 2014 recipient of TAG Oil’s $5,000 scholarship, awarded annually to a promising senior from Stratford High School that is interested in an oil and gas-related field of study.
In Matthew’s case, he plans to tackle a double major in geology and physics next year at Waikato University.
In a competitive field of high-achieving local students, it was Matthew’s combination of strong academics, solid work ethic, and demonstrated leadership that impressed the TAG scholarship team. "We look for well-rounded individuals who deliver academically but also have a positive influence at school," said TAG country manager Max Murray.
Matthew has those characteristics in spades, and we look forward to seeing what this bright and driven young man achieves in the years to come. Congratulations!
