Kim Sillemann awarded the Geo-scholarship at KNord
Kim Sillemann, Managing Director in Geo, awarded the Geo-scholarship at Lyngby High School KNord in Lyngby. Speech Day was on 23. June 2017.
It’s KNord’s second generation of STX students since Lyngby High School opened a STX-line four years ago to supplement the HHX-line at KNord. Therefore, it was only the second time Geo had the pleasure of awarding the Geo-scholarship to the student, who in a particularly high degree has shown interest and talent within science.
In the speech to the new students Kim Sillemann spoke about innovation and how innovation and an innovative mind-set can change the world. This applies whether it’s innovation like the innovation Bill Gates created with Microsoft, the innovation Janus Friis created with Skype or the innovation developed like Mærsk Oil, when they were the first to use horizontal drilling techniques in the North Sea for better extraction of oil and gas from dense fields. These are all examples of innovation, which in their own way has changed the world. Innovation is important and only becomes increasingly more important in the future. At Lyngby High School KNord, where innovation is a permanent part of the curriculum and the culture of the school, they are aware of this.
Criteria for receiving the scholarship:
The Geo-scholarship is awarded to a student, who in a particularly high degree has shown both interest and talent within science, and who has the potential to become an outstanding engineer. In addition to this, the student must have studied A-level mathematics and physics with convincing results. The Geo-scholarship consists of a cash prize of DKK 2.500 and a DKK 2.500 gift certificate for study books.
Big congratulations to all the new students. We wish you good luck with your future studies.
