Garnett adding to Langley scholars

 

Students who’ve gone through R.C. Garnett Demonstration Elementary have a chance at a new scholarship created by the school’s parent advisory council.

The first Garnett students will be graduating this year so the PAC established a $500 scholarship to mark the occasion.

The deadline to apply is April 20 and full details are available from school counsellors.

“As a group, the parents at our school decided it is important to continue our legacy of support and caring, well past when our children leave our school halls,” said Noella King, the PAC co-president. “We are hoping to make a difference in a student’s life as they move forward in the next phase of their education.”

The successful candidate must have completed their elementary education at RC Garnett Elementary, and have attended RC Garnett for a minimum of two years.

The student must currently be a resident of Langley, and be starting their post-secondary studies within one year of graduation.

The focus of the scholarship will be community service and so applicants will also be asked to submit a one-page essay describing their involvement/experience in volunteer and community groups.

Students should contact their school counsellor for full details and the application form, or RC Garnett PAC via email at rcgpac@gmail.com. The recipient of the scholarship will be notified before June 1.
