The fifth New South Wales Regional Dentistry Scholarship has been awarded to Jarrod Brice of Euston in the south-west of the State.
The scholarship is sponsored by the Nationals Senator for New South Wales John Williams who will provide $4,800 of his own funds to assist Jarrod in his studies.
Jarrod has enrolled in the 1st year of the Bachelor of Dental Science at the University of Adelaide.
As part of his scholarship, Jarrod will receive mentoring support from experienced dental practitioner Dr. Christopher Cole who has also been a mentor to the four previous scholarship recipients Olivia Jom, Jessica Powell, Alayne White and Amelia Judson.
Councils and community groups in the Richmond electorate are now being invited to submit ideas for new projects under the Federal government’s Green Army program.
The Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams has announced that applications are now being accepted until the 9th of May.
He said the Green Army represents Australia’s largest-ever team supporting environmental action across the country, building to 15,000 young Australians by 2018.
“In the first round we want projects that will be ready to start between the 1st of July this year and the end of June next year.
The final public hearing into the performance of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has heard of forged documents, inappropriate advice, lack of communication and an apology from Australia’s largest bank.
The Nationals Senator for New South Wales John Williams instigated the inquiry midway through last year after his frustration boiled over at not getting straight answers on ASIC’s handling of the Commonwealth Financial Planning (CFP) scandal.
Senator Williams, a member of the Senate Economics References Committee, said evidence from witnesses Jan Braund and Merilyn Swan laid bare the wrongdoings in CFP where rogue financial planners allegedly forged signatures and changed documents as they squandered peoples’ life savings.

For over a decade Australian troops have seen continuous deployments on operations overseas, often in complex, challenging and extremely dangerous environments.
Following the completion of missions in East Timor and the Solomon Islands, and the continued drawdown of forces in Afghanistan, there are fewer Australian troops serving overseas than in previous years.
During Australia’s operations in Afghanistan 40 Australian Defence Force (ADF) members have been killed and 261 have been wounded. For some of our veterans, mental and physical injuries resulting from their military service will last a lifetime.
