Simon Miyashita, an aviation student and community volunteer, is the 2019 winner of the Lynn Papp Award.
Miyashita, a Maple Ridge secondary Grade 11 student, is working towards getting his pilot’s licence and hopes to one day aid in delivering packages with the Red Cross in Third World countries to those in need of food, water and medicine.
He’s always felt that society should help others and do for the greater good. “I guess it’s just a responsibility, as humans, to help each other out.”
