Williams Lake and District Credit Union wishes to announce that a $1,500 bursary has been awarded to Aodhan Cearnaigh. Aodhan graduated from Sir Alexander Mackenzie School earlier this year, and has been accepted into the Bachelor of Applied Science program at the University of British Columbia. He is hoping to enter the Engineering Physics branch, which could potentially see him pursuing a career in a field such as nanotechnology.

Aodhan enjoys snowboarding and playing soccer. During his grade 12 year, he attended the British Columbia Youth Parliament, which has stimulated his interest in serving his community.

Provision of bursaries to local students is consistent with Williams Lake and District Credit Union’s commitment to support its members and their communities. We are pleased to recognize Aodhan’s achievements with our financial support.
