The English Montreal School Board (EMSB) distributed 22 cash scholarships of $500 each on Wed. Nov. 30 to students from the graduating class of 2005 at a central head office. These scholarships are being funded from the proceeds of the first EMSB Scholarship Golf Tournament held in Lachute in June, 2004. Beneficiaries from the tournament, which took place this past June, will be chosen at the end of the current academic year. Scholarships were awarded to high school students who are continuing their studies in a post-secondary educational program and divided into two categories: students who have demonstrated a high academic achievement as well as involvement in school life activities such as leadership, volunteerism, student council, school sports, representing the school in different events; those who have persevered in the face of overwhelming odds and personal difficulties.
