KUCHING: Poverty has not stopped Andy Mark Tipi from doing well in last year’s Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) examination.

On Tuesday, the efforts of the SM Teknik Sejingkat student, who scored 6As and 1B which made him one of the State’s top achievers, were recognised when Sarawak Shell Berhad offered him a scholarship.

He was among 145 students awarded bursaries and scholarships by the company for doing well in their studies and co-curricular activities.

The bursary is worth RM750 a year while the scholarships are awarded to students pursuing their education at local and foreign universities.

Mark aims to be an engineer “I have great admiration for engineers,” he said after receiving the bursary from Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu on Tuesday.

SSB managing director Wee Yiaw Hin said the company would be spending RM4.7 million this year sponsoring the education of students in Sarawak and Sabah.
