Glen Turner.A NEW scholarship has been created to honour a government employee was was shot and killed in NSW last year.
Glen Turner was an Office of Environment and Heritage employee who was killed at Croppa Creek near Moree in July 2014.
Environment Minister Rob Stokes announced the creation of the Glen Turner Scholarship today, which will cover full tuition fees at the University of Newcastle to a student in the field of natural resource management.
“Glen Turner was a champion of the regional way of life and dedicated to the protection of the environment,” Mr Stokes said.
“We have created the Glen Turner Scholarship in conjunction with Glen’s family and the University of Newcastle to assist a student who displays the values Glen exhibited.
“As a tribute to Glen Turner’s background the scholarship is designed to support a student from the bush or a low socio-economic background.”
Mr Turner’s partner Alison McKenzie said on behalf of the family that they were pleased the scholarship applications were now open.
“Glen was all about supporting the underdog, having ideas and advancing the cause of the environment. Education and supporting young people were very important to him,” she said.
“We are so proud that a student in a field that he loved, at the university that he respected will find it a little easier to start their career with a scholarship which bears his name.”
Mr Turner attended the University of Newcastle from 1982 – 1985.
