Terry White AO and Rhonda White AO are well known for growing Australia’s largest pharmacy network of over 500 outlets. Throughout the decades, they have been applauded for their dedication to the profession of Pharmacy and their passion for community. Both have been granted numerous significant awards, including an Order of Australia for their specific specialty contributions and lifetime members of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia.

Terry is a treasured Old Boy of St Joseph’s Nudgee College - a past Prefect, Barrett House Captain and successful sportsman, having played in the First XI Cricket and First XV Rugby from 1952 to 1954. Terry was also awarded the W. Carlton-Smith Award for his leadership, study and co-curricular sport, which was a clear sign of future successes to come. As well as growing a pharmacy empire with Rhonda, Terry also served as a Member of Parliament and Minister of the Crown in the Queensland Parliament.

Terry and Rhonda value family over anything else. Tragically, they lost their sons Benjamin and William in 2020, which was unspeakably painful for them, their children Anthony, Stephanie and Joseph, and nine grandchildren. They were extremely grateful for the support that has encircled them in these difficult times from the Nudgee community. Their hope is that through this bursary, they may honour their sons’ memories and, at the same time, pass on a precious and lifetime gift to a young man - the chance of a Nudgee College education.
