Newfoundland and Labrador
Scholarships valued at over $200,000 have been awarded to over 200 high school students from across Newfoundland and Labrador, including 17 from the Trinity-Conception and Placentia regions.
Students from Baccalieu Collegiate in Old Perlican, Ascension Collegiate in Bay Roberts, Carbonear Collegiate, Crescent Collegiate in Blaketown and Laval High in Placentia were selected for either electoral district scholarships or centenary for responsible government scholarships.
Ranging in value from $1,000 to $2,500, recipients were selected based upon the results of public examinations.
“I congratulate each of this year’s scholarship recipients and wish them continued success in their post-secondary pursuits,” said Clyde Jackman, minister of education.
The highest valued scholarship is the Junior Jubilee Scholarship. Valued at $2,500, this year’s winner was Justin Drover of Holy Heart High in St. John’s.
The Constable W.C. Moss Scholarship is awarded to the son or daughter of a member of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (active, retired or deceased) who, other than the Junior Jubilee winner, received the highest marks in public exams. This year’s winner was James McDonald of Holy Trinit High in Torbay.
