2022 Student Bursary Recipients

At the Regular Council Meeting on September 21, 2022, the South Stormont Student Bursaries were awarded to Sydney Denney, Katherine Nesbitt, and Noelan Spink. The following are excerpts from the recipients winning applications. 

Sydney Denney, University of Ottawa - Honours Bachelor of Science in Nursing

“It has always been my dream to work in healthcare. As a Health Care Aide at a retirement home, I work firsthand with elders in my community to serve and care for them every day. As I enter nursing school at the University of Ottawa in a week, my goal is to expand my knowledge in women’s healthcare and fertility so that I can work as an OB/GYN RN to provide the women in my small community with the quality and empathetic care that they deserve.”

Katherine Nesbitt, Trent University - Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

“Once I've completed my 4 years at Trent University, I plan to use my bachelors degree in the sciences to attend the pharmacy program at Waterloo. After which 3 I would like to pursue a career as a pharmacist in a hospital so that I can experience many different cases in which medicine will be needed.”

Noelan Spink, Acadia University - Kinesiology

“My goals are to graduate with a degree in kinesiology and to gain as much experience in volunteering and or internship opportunities during my studies. I plan to be an active member of the Acadia and Wolfville community to continue developing my leadership skills. My future career goals are to work in the field of sport, potentially working with athletes for sport performance or with sports injury. I may also look into sports management.”
