Madeline Bishop received a surprise that all prospective students dream of accepting - a large $10,000 scholarship to pursue post-secondary education.
Bishop learned she was the recipient of the Ted Rogers Scholarship, an award which grants the recipient four installments of $2,500 over four years, during a surprise reveal.
“This is so amazing,” Bishop exclaimed.
She has been a dedicated volunteer with the YMCA of Okanagan’s Boys in Action program for the past two years, making her a perfect fit for the award which recognizes young leaders in the community and ensures they have the financial capability to attend post-secondary education.
“I love volunteering and working with children with special needs,” said Bishop.
“I want to be a Psychologist, which is what I am going to school for this fall at the University of British Columbia Okanagan.”
