Students whoâ€™ve gone through R.C. Garnett Demonstration Elementary have a chance at a new scholarship created by the schoolâ€™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.
â€œAs 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,â€ said Noella King, the PAC co-president. â€œWe are hoping to make a difference in a studentâ€™s life as they move forward in the next phase of their education.â€
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. The recipient of the scholarship will be notified before June 1.
