Top academic students awarded scholarships

Three central Island students are off to Trinity Western University in Langley this fall thanks in part to school scholarships.

Nanaimo Christian School graduates Joel De Schiffart and Fallon Benson received $28,000 and $8,000 scholarships, respectively from TWU.

De Schiffart is pursuing a degree in human kinetics, while Benson is studying social sciences.

Caleb Garriott of Nanoose Bay and a graduate of Ballenas Secondary School in Parksville, also received a $28,000 scholarship to help achieve his pre-engineering degree.

The scholarships are awarded annually to top academic students of the incoming first-year class.
