Over the years, Jon’s sponsored students have achieved many milestones. Jon wanted to be certain that even the youngest ones would have every chance to finish their education. So he decided to include a gift to The Smith Family in his Will.
Jon knew his gift would create more possibilities for disadvantaged students. Nothing demonstrated this more than attending a graduation ceremony for 30 Learning for Life students last year.
“Most of the students were the first in their family to reach that level of education. Among the Year 12 graduates there were students going on to study medical science, law, social work, teaching, event management and more. It was pretty impressive,” said Jon.
“It’s an unfortunate reality that if you don't at least have Year 12 under your belt, it’s much harder to get a job. I want my gift to keep sponsoring my students until they complete their education.”
