Students recognized with Envision scholarships

Education awards focus on community work and education

A pair of Surrey students have been recognized provincewide with a $2,500 scholarship from Envision Financial.

Michael Salloum and Deborah Zhang each received Envision’s The Full Cupboard Volunteer Education Award for “outstanding community volunteerism with their local food banks.”

Salloum spent more than 630 hours volunteering with the Surrey Food Bank; Zhang has been active with Sources’ White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank since June 2012.

Envision also awarded 11 education awards, including one to Earl Marriott Secondary grad Jazlyn Melnychuk. The awards recognize students “who have demonstrated outstanding scholastic ability combined with exceptional community volunteer service.”

Melnychuk has dedicated considerable time to the Model United Nations Conference – founding and organizing the White Rock Model United Nations – as well as a White Rock Youth Ambassador.
