Scholarship winners (left to right) Kiran Mann

Community work recognized by Rotary Club

Three Peninsula teens win scholarships towards post-secondary education.

The Rotary Club of White Rock provided three local students with some financial support as they enter college this fall.

Kiran Mann, Jasmine Webster and Alexandra Sakellariou are all recipients of the rotary club’s $1,500 Community Scholarships, awarded to the trio for their community work.

Sakellariou, a graduate of White Rock Christian Academy, volunteered with Christina Place visiting seniors, and will now be attending McGill University in Montreal with a focus on law.

Mann graduated from Panorama Secondary, where she started a mentorship program with friends for girls age five, six and seven to help them cope with the transition from elementary to secondary school. The program is now used district-wide.

A Semiahmoo Secondary grad, Webster volunteered for more than six years with the Semiahmoo House Society. She will now attend Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and plans to be a special-education teacher.
