CBC: Thompson student takes home $70k scholarship

June 12, 2015 — 

CBC News shares a story of a graduating high school student from R.D. Parker Collegiate in Thompson, MB has been awarded a $70,000 scholarship for her community leadership from TD Canada Trust. Morgan Hanson-Olveira will be attending the U of M this fall, with the hope of pursuing pediatric endocrinology.

Hanson-Olveira was rewarded for her community leadership, demonstrated through her work primarily with H3 (Hands Heart, and Hope), and SOS (Students Offering Support).

“I know that I’m very privileged to live in Canada. I have a safe home, I have shelter, I have food, I have clean water and I know there are those out there that don’t have anything,” Hanson-Olveira said.

“For those of us who are able to help, it’s our responsibility to make a difference.”
