Congratulations to Lexie Krocker '16 who is one of fifteen recipients (out of 8,000) to receive a $10,000 scholarship from the Royal Bank of Canada!
"Lexie Krocker, 18, was one of 8,000 applicants to apply for the RBC Student Leading Change Scholarship Program. She received the award based on an essay she wrote about her experiences living in Thailand and the work she would like to do to bridge the gap of gender inequality. Krocker has since been accepted to the University of Ottawa where she will take International Development and Globalization courses starting in September."
"Scott Mancini, RBC regional vice president of Kawartha Lakes Shores, says it’s great to have a local student receive the RBC Student Leading Change Scholarship. “We are so proud to have someone local win this award,” says Mancini. ”By reading Lexie’s application you can see all that she has done…and it’s just outstanding to have someone local win this.”"
Way to go Lexie! Read more online at bit.ly/RBCScholarship
