UP and coming sportsman were recognised recently as Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) has recognised Travis Wadley and Keanu Bowen-Wilson as the recipients of their 2021 sports bursary. 

The bursary is offered early, seeking to recognise two students in the region who are competing at state, national and/or international levels, using their experiences to help develop sport in the local community. 

The bursaries are valued at $650 and aim to assist the recipients with the associated costs of competing and developing their sporting skills. 

TRC Mayor Rod Marti said it was an honour to present Travis and Keanu with their bursaries and congratulate them on their success. 

“Keanu is the Malanda State High School captain and is passionate about sports particularly rugby league, touch football and athletics,” Mayor Marti said. 

“He has excelled at these sports at regional and state levels and is currently playing with the Northern Pride U18 side in the Auswide Mal Meninga Cup.” 

Mayor Marti was as equally impressed with Travis’s dedication to sailing with him often competing in national titles in the south of Australia.

“Travis has been sailing since he was six and has received numerous state national and international titles,” he said. 

“He is a qualified sailing instructor and is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and supporting others to improve their sailing skills.”

The applications for the 2022 Sports Bursary open in January of 2022.
