Delta's Korrie Grant marked the start of the new school year with accolades as Coast Capital Savings handed out its annual Education Awards. In total, 48 students from across the province had their exemplary efforts recognized with awards worth $2,000 to $5,000 each.
Grant received a Citizenship Award for demonstrating strong leadership within her community while balancing her academic and personal life.
"I am thrilled to be one of such a small group to be recognized in this way by Coast Capital Savings," said Grant, who is currently enrolled at Simon Fraser University.
"I will continue to make community leadership a priority as I venture into my post-secondary career and this recognition provides me with another boost to make that possible."
Focusing on achieving her undergrad degree locally, Grant would eventually like to obtain her master's overseas to broaden her horizons.
In addition to an outstanding academic record, Grant is an avid athlete who dedicates much of her free time to playing and volunteering with sports teams in her community.
This year Coast Capital Savings presented 48 awards totalling $144,000 to deserving students.
