From a pool of more than 5,200 applicants, only 90 young people were selected as finalists in the 2024 Loran scholarships – and one is from Maple Ridge.
Each year, the Loran Scholars Foundation awards students who show a breadth of interests, commitment to community service, leadership, and drive to work towards long-term goals, reads its website.
Emmy Wang, Grade 12 from Thomas Haney Secondary, said it took a few moments to process the exciting news.
“I had been so caught up in doing interview after interview and keeping up with school at the same time. I was at school cutting posters for council when I got the call,” she recalled.
