Caledonia Secondary School 2015 graduate Simran Jawanda now has a medal recognizing her academic achievements.

Jawanda, now a student at the University of Northern British Columbia, was presented with the Governor-General’s Bronze Academic Medal for achieving an average of 97.53 per cent for the courses she took in Grades 11 and 12.

The medal was presented by Caledonia awards and scholarships coordinator Robin MacLeod over the Christmas holidays.

Seventy-seven Caledonia graduates were granted local scholarships with a total value of $67,675 this year, reports MacLeod.

Nine students received external scholarships valued at $17,300 and 12 graduates accepted entrance scholarships to post secondary institutions valued at $99,900.

As well, 45 Cal students received $1,000 provincial scholarships through the school district for their achievements in applied skills, community and school service, fine arts, physical activities, second languages and trades.

Thirty-seven Grade 12 students received Passport to Education tuition credits to be applied to post secondary education.

These credits are worth $500 and are the last to be issued by the province which has now replaced this program with a new one.

Qualifying students previously received $250 tuition credits for achievements in each of Grade 11 and Grade 12.

Seventeen graduating Cal students were granted $1,000 scholarships based on the results of required provincial examinations.
