Seven recipients for Service Above Self Surrey Youth Awards

Seven Surrey youths were recognized for their dedication to the community at the fourth annual Service Above Self Surrey Youth (SASSY) Awards last Friday.

Surrey students aged 15 to 21 who are making a difference in the community by demonstrating the Rotary ideal of “service above self” were recognized in different categories.

Karan Grover (community service), Soohyun Kim (environmental leadership), Monie Singh Tutt (international service), Jordynn Denness (overcoming adversity), Alexandra Calbery (performing and visual arts), Colby Peters (sportsmanship), and Jaskirat Sahni (youth leadership), all received a SASSY award and a $1,000 bursary, as well as $500 to donate to the charity of their choice.

Held at the Surrey Arts Centre, the awards were hosted by the Semiahmoo Rotary Club in partnership with the City of Surrey, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and Surrey School District, with support from Peninsula Community Foundation and the White Rock and Central City Rotary Clubs.

The evening included award-winning presentations by the RCMP Surrey Steps Up youth program and entertainment from all-girl punk band She Dreams in Colour.
