Leron's academic talents as a high school student are reflected in the awards he consistently received for academic excellence. Having to also juggle part-time work commitments to help support his mother and sister, Leron worked hard at school to maintain this outstanding record.
ION Limited found it a privilege to be able to offer this young man financial support and work experience through a First Foundation Scholarship, commenting that he was an "obvious choice" for their company.
Leron graduated in 2009 from The Auckland University with a Bachelor of Engineering and First Class Honours in Mechanical Engineering. Also in 2009 Leron received a University of Auckland Scholarship for $25000 pa plus fees while studying for his Doctorate in Engineering.
