The ‘I Am A Promise’ scholarship award was presented to two very deserving recipients this year. The award is a bursary for clients of Grandview Children’s Centre who have plans for post-secondary education. It was established by Ruth Althouse, a former principal of Campbell Children’s School, the co-located education partner of Grandview.
Ruth presented the awards recently to two clients of Grandview’s Adolescent Program; Carmen Lalonde and Sam Keane
Carmen has been accepted into the Bachelor of Business Administration program at the University of Toronto. Carmen said she applied for the ‘I Am A Promise’ award because it would be of great assistance in her post-secondary journey. She said it will lighten the load of costs that she will soon incur. Once Carmen has completed her degree, she would like to pursue a Chartered Professional Accountant accreditation or complete her Masters of Business Administration (MBA). She recognizes that these are big goals that she has set for herself and this award will help set her in the right direction. Grandview believes in you, Carmen!
Sam will be attending Durham College’s Sports Administration Management program this September. Its a program he’s been dreaming about attending since grade nine. Sam hopes that completing this program will help land him a job in the hockey world. That is his number one passion in life! He has been volunteering with the Oshawa Generals Hockey Club as a Fan Services Representative and plans to continue doing so while he’s studying at Durham College. Grandview is so proud of you, Sam! You’ll do great.
