SIT sponsoring NZ discus champion Marshall Hall

The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) is proud to announce sponsorship of SIT National Diploma in Business L5 student Marshall Hall. Marshall is the current and six time New Zealand Discus Champion and part of the NZ High Performance Throwing squad working towards the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Marshall chose SIT because the flexible mixed mode delivery learning options through SIT2LRN, SIT’s distance learning faculty, gave him the flexibility to work around his training and his current job working for the Ministry of Social Development. Marshall recognised the need for business acumen as a sportsman and in his professional role. He believed SIT’s National Diploma in Business Level 5 had the strongest curriculum for his needs in addition to the benefits of the zero fees scheme and the flexibility of distance learning.

Marshall is currently attending the USA competition tour, then the Oceania Area Championships in Cairns Australia in May representing New Zealand, then the World University Games in South Korea in July representing SIT and New Zealand. He is also working towards qualifying for the World Track and Field Championships in Beijing in August.
