Congratulations to Cassidy Formaniuk, winner of the 2022 Sunova Scholarship!
June 06, 2022
We are thrilled to announce that Cassidy Formaniuk, member of our Stonewall branch, has won the 2022 Sunova Scholarship. The prize? A whopping $7500 to be used towards Cassidy’s post-secondary education.
It’s never easy choosing the winner for the Sunova Scholarship, and this year was no exception with so many deserving candidates in the running. It was Cassidy’s long list of community volunteer experiences that stood out to the committee, including Stony Mountain Elementary, Siloam Mission, and Special Olympics.
We were equally impressed with Cassidy’s essay as well as her drive and determination to study linguistics and speech-language pathology. Her intense ambition and passion for her education are truly inspiring and we wish Cassidy all the best as she completes her Advanced Bachelor of Arts at the University of Manitoba.
But don’t just take our word for it. Here is what Lauren Brad from Stony Mountain Elementary has to say about Cassidy.
“With our school having many different needs, Cassidy has gone over and beyond to make the students feel happy, safe, and loved. Volunteering during a pandemic has its challenges but Cassidy has proven to be flexible, mindful, and supportive. Cassidy has far exceeded any expectations I had for someone coming in on a volunteer position. Stony Mountain School views Cassidy as a valued member of our school team and a positive role model to the students and the community of Stony Mountain.”
Cassidy, thank you for all you do for the community. We wish you all the best with your studies and can’t wait to see how you continue to do good, be better, own it, move forward, and create fun through your education and beyond.
