CORNWALL, Ontario – Team Cornwall awarded eight high school students on Thursday, July 5 at City Hall for their strong qualities of character and good citizenship. Each student was awarded with $500 and a Team Cornwall shirt, so they can act as ambassadors of Cornwall while they continue their education.
“These bursaries are to recognize these exceptional students and help them receive the education they want, as well as to encourage them to promote our beautiful city,” said Peter Gault, Chair of Team Cornwall.
