A New Glasgow teen who is a top student, athlete, musician and volunteer is this year’s winner of a prestigious provincial government scholarship. Charlotte Harrison will accept the $6,000 Dr. P. Anthony (Tony) Johnstone Memorial Fund Entrance Scholarship at her school’s graduation ceremony today, June 26. “Charlotte is an outstanding young Nova Scotian,” said Education Minister Marilyn More. “She excels at school, on the sports field and on the stage. She has also shown that even a busy student can still find time to help others in the community. It is my pleasure to congratulate her on this award.” Ms. Harrison has maintained an excellent academic record at Northumberland Regional High School while being involved in athletics, school musical productions, music and volunteering. She has been an eager tutor and mentor, and was the organizer of the school’s breakfast program. Ms. Harrison is also a counsellor at a camp for disadvantaged youth and helped launch an anti-malaria fundraiser at her school. “I enjoy the experience and I find it very rewarding,” Ms. Harrison said about her volunteer activities. “I am honoured to be receiving this scholarship and I encourage other students to get involved in their school and community.” Ms. Harrison will attend University of Kings College in Halifax this fall. To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must live in Nova Scotia, be graduating from high school and beginning an undergraduate degree program at a Maritime university in the fall. The applicant must also have demonstrated an interest in multiculturalism and human rights. This year, 38 eligible applications were reviewed by the selection committee. Nova Scotia established the scholarship in 1991 to honour the life and work of the late Tony Johnstone, a long-time educator and human rights advocate who devoted his life to promoting multicultural understanding and social equality.
