Brixton Sandhals accepts a bursary of $2

A local young man looking ahead to his future received a financial boost for his university education thanks to a bursary from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #13 here.

Brixton Sandhals was awarded $4,000 to help further his studies at Kings University in Edmonton.

He’s the grandson of Cde. “Sandy” Sandhals, who fought with the North Nova Scotia Highlanders in England, France and Germany during the Second World War and a recipient of the “Knight of the French National Order of the Legion of Honour” medal.

Brixton lived his entire life in Terrace as well as excelling in academics and involving himself in community activities.

He is majoring in English literature with a double minor in Math and Philosophy.

It is his intention to spend next year in Japan teaching English while honing his own skills in the Japanese language and then plans to return to Canada and pursue a graduate degree in literature.
