David is full of praise for the teachers at Bunbury Senior High School who encouraged hard work and initiative. "That sort of work ethic sticks with you I think." In 2011 David co-founded the not-for-profit organisation called Teach Lean Grow Inc., a volunteer group that sends university students to primary schools in remote and regional areas to help boost literacy and numeracy. David received his scholarship from State Governor Malcolm McCusker at Government House.

Jane and Karen Bromley

Jane and Karen were only one year apart at Bunbury Senior High School and both women have gone on to study medicine at the University of WA. The sisters were high achievers in a range of areas at school. Obviously, both were academically talented and were a part of the online Gifted and Talented program. They were members of the school band and talented athletes, representing their school at Country Week and Athletics. In 2010 and 2011, respectively, Jane and Karen were recipients of the Fogarty Scholarship, which has funded their undergraduate program at UWA and continues to support them as postgraduate medical students. Both women are members of the Fogarty Group at UWA and benefit enormously from those connections .
