Peninsula students receive education boost

Eight Peninsula high school grads received an education boost last week, courtesy the South Surrey-White Rock Conservative Association.

The grads – Madeleine Wasmuth and Maxwell Radcliffe (Earl Marriott Secondary); Ethan Hinchliff and Sydney Klassen (White Rock Christian Academy); Sophia Mohan and Ian Lin (Elgin Park Secondary); and Hannah Lambert and Tyler He (Semiahmoo Secondary) – were awarded the 2017 Sir John A. Macdonald Student Leadership Award during a July 5 presentation at Semiahmoo House.

The award is presented to students who have demonstrated excellence in their studies and outstanding leadership qualities, enabling them to assume roles in student government. It includes a $500 scholarship.
