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.

Each stu­dent was awarded with $500 and a Team Corn­wall shirt so they can act as am­bas­sadors of Corn­wall while they con­tinue their ed­u­ca­tion. Gault said that the students cho­sen this year rep­re­sent a di­verse range of post-se­condary ca­reers, from nurs­ing, to car­pen­try to law.

The Team Corn­wall High School Bur­sary has been given out to grad­u­at­ing students for the past eight years. Fac­ulty mem­bers of each high school in Corn­wall se­lected one lucky re­cip­i­ent.

“Th­ese students were cho­sen be­cause they are lead­ers and proud of our city,” said City Coun­cil­lor David Murphy to Team Corn­wall. “As am­bas­sadors, we hope they will con­tinue to speak highly of Corn­wall and let ev­ery­one know how great of a com­mu­nity this is.”
