Adelaide Metcalfe Resident Receives Student Scholarship

October 17, 2016

Adelaide Metcalfe, Ontario - Township of Adelaide Metcalfe Mayor is excited to announce the winner of the 2016 Mayor Kurtis Smith Scholarship.

The successful candidate for the $1,000 scholarship is Sabrina Gmehlin.  She applied to the scholarship by providing two reference letters, final transcript of grade, and wrote a submission explaining why she is eligible for the scholarship.

This is the second year Mayor Kurtis Smith has provided the opportunity for graduating secondary school students who reside within the Township of Adelaide Metcalfe to apply for the $1,000 scholarship.  "This scholarship encourages the youth of Adelaide Metcalfe to be more engaged in the community" says Mayor Smith.  "The recipient was selected because of her dedication in high school and for her drive to succeed in furthering her education.  Sabrina Gmehlin has gone above and beyond volunteering in the community and participating in several extracurricular activities throughout her high school career."

Sabrina Gmehlin graduated from Strathroy District Collegiate Institute and is currently enrolled in the nursing program at Laurentian University.  "I am very honoured and grateful to have won this scholarship as it will relieve some of the financial strain for my family and I,"  Sabrina says.  "My future ambitions are to be a nurse and to be involved in the community.  I wish to help the people in the community recover from illnesses by being by their side while they recover."

Given the success of the scholarship from the past two years, the Mayor Kurtis Smith Scholarship will continue for 2017.  Details of the scholarship have been provided to local high schools and are available on the Township of Adelaide Metcalfe website.
