A Summerland student is one of 16 from across Western Canada to win a $1,000 bursary from Remax.
In April, Haley Latkin was named a recipient of the bursary.
The annual Remax Quest for Excellence program encourages graduating students from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, the Yukon and Northwest Territories to submit an essay detailing the contributions they have made to their communities.
The bursary winners have all demonstrated exceptional motivation, leadership, and communication skills.
“The 2016 recipients are a group of talented Grade 12 students whose actions have benefited each of their communities. it is inspiring to see such tremendous contributions at a young age,” said Marie Sheppy, manager of corporate affairs for Remax of Western Canada.
“They are setting great examples for others to follow in their footsteps.”
