Michael was the fo­cus of a story in The Com­pass last year, high­light­ing a trip he took to Dal- housie 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 Tom- my 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, Ter­riLynn 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.
