Kate Budgen wearing new Yellows Plus glasses in time for her final year 13 exams. At age 18, Katie's list of achievements runs for miles. She has just completed her final year at Mt Albert Grammar School where she was Head Girl and awarded Dux.
Academia has not been at the expense of the arts or sport as Katie is an accomplished cello player and was captain of the New Zealand Women's La Crosse team. She is one of only a small number of students to receive an Auckland University full fees scholarship.
However to us here, Katie is most well known as Tom Holmes' (Michael's son's) girlfriend. Lucky Tom! All the best Katie (and Tom) as you head off to Uni next year.
