WCMRC would like to congratulate the recipients of our $1,000 post-secondary scholarships: Heather Crawford, Matthew Huk and Clementine Hiltner. Out of the numerous eligible candidates whose applications we received, these three individuals demonstrated exemplary academic performance, career goals and community involvement.
Heather is a Dean’s Honour Roll student graduating this May from UBC’s Sauder School of Business with a Bachelor of Commerce – specializing in Transportation Logistics, International Business, and Sustainability. Post-graduation, her focus is to fuse her passions for logistics and environmental sustainability to make a difference in supply chain and marine industries. To achieve this ambitious goal, she hopes to become a Director of Operations for a marine terminal and lead the industry in developing, as well as enforcing, environmentally sustainable operating practices.
Matthew is in his final year of a Bachelor of Forestry in Resource Management at UBC, where last year he made the Dean’s List for outstanding academic performance. After completion of his undergrad he hopes to be accepted to the Environmental Law program at UBC. His goal is to help environmental groups and businesses work together to ensure appropriate environmental regulations are in place.
Clementine is currently enrolled at the University of Victoria and plans on graduating this December with a BA in Geography and a concentration in Environmental Sustainability. Throughout her studies she has been employed part-time at BC Ferries, where she was trained in marine emergency response. By gaining qualifications through the Federal Work Experience Program her goal is to eventually work for BC Ferries’ Environmental Department, where she plans on helping BC maintain its diverse and biologically abundant terrestrial and marine ecosystems.
We hope this scholarship helps these talented individuals achieve their goal of protecting our environment while also fostering our country’s economic growth.
