Newcastle-based elite para-athlete, Aimee Fisher, has been awarded the second annual Newcastle Knights Minerva Scholarship in recognition of her outstanding achievements in national athletics. The $10,000 12-month scholarship will enable Fisher to progress her Medical Sonography studies at Central Queensland University while continuing her training in Sydney.
