Three students from the Trinity Conception area have been awarded Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees (NAPE) at-large scholarships.
Michael Kennedy from Spaniard’s Bay, Terri-Lynn Hoskins from New Harbour and Jessica Morgan from Harbour Grace have been awarded $500 towards post-secondary education.
Michael was the focus of a story in The Compass last year, highlighting a trip he took to Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia sponsored by Shad Valley. He said last September he changed his aspirations from wanting to be an engineer to becoming a medical doctor because of the trip.
At 18 years old, Michael is now attending post-secondary at Memorial University. He graduated from Ascension Collegiate in Bay Roberts in June.
This is not the only scholarship Michael has received. He has also been acknowledged nationally by the National Union of Public and General Employees with the Tommy Douglas scholarship for an essay on how to make Canada a more just and equitable society, and received a $12,000 Shad Valley scholarship as an alumnus.
Michael is the son of John and Christine Kennedy of Spaniard’s Bay, and has a sister, Nicole.
Terri-Lynn graduated from Crescent Collegiate in June as well.
This 18-year-old has aspirations in the health field as well. She is currently attending the Memorial University nursing program at the Centre for Nursing Studies in St. John’s.
In March of this year, Terri-Lynn was also acknowledged for her academics, community involvement and leadership skills at the Miss Teen Newfoundland and Labrador Pageant by making the Top-10.
She was also the recipient of the Clearwater scholarship worth $600.
Terri Lynn is the daughter of Sheila Hoskins, and the late Terry Hoskins. She also has one brother, Michael.
Jessica graduated from Carbonear Collegiate in 2009.
The 22-year-old is currently attending Keyin College in Carbonear completing the Child and Youth Care Worker program.
“I would like to work with disabled children and help them with the many struggles they have,” Jessica told The Compass.
Jessica is the daughter of Brenda and Paul Morgan of Harbour Grace. She has one brother, Scott who’s 20, and a niece Jasmine who is 16 months old. She is also engaged to Musgrave Harbour native Christopher Pike.
