Some may remember that as part of the 2015 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards ceremony, Morphum Environmental’s directors, Caleb Clarke, Dean Watts and Damian Young, jointly made a pledge to sponsor a student through the First Foundation scholarship programme.

In 2016, First Foundation selected Miracle Naititi – a student at Massey High School – to be our sponsored student.

Miracle is currently in his final year of high school. He is interested in civil engineering and architectural studies, and he plays for the Auckland under 17 Blues squad. The First Foundation scholarship programme will support Miracle through his university years. In addition to financial assistance, Miracle has been provided with a mentor, and will work in Morphum Environmental’s Auckland office for five weeks of paid work per year of the programme, giving him valuable experience in the industry whilst he completes his degree.
