Our Club recently presented a $500 scholarship to Chantay Rose, who was selected by the West Island Black Community Association. WITCA was represented by Chairperson Kemba Mitchell and Treasurer Joan Lee at a recent meeting.
Chantay told us she is a graduate of the Social Science program at Vanier College and a future John Abbott College student of the Information and Library Technologies Program.
“I want to share my appreciation of the Rotary club and to accept the Rotary Club Scholarship Award. What amazes me about the Rotary club is that you support the worldwide community, providing medical assistance, schools, educational aid, including scholarships, clean water and sanitation. You also believe that promoting world peace and understanding is very important. The Rotary club also donates money to help organizations that help others less fortunate in the community. I also believe in promoting these values in my community. To conclude I want to thank God, my family and friends and the Rotary Club for helping me follow my dreams for the future. It’s a great honour to be chosen to receive this Rotary scholarship award and I look forward to the opportunity to share my skills and ideas with the Rotary Club in the future. Thank you.”
