Congratulations to Brody Boudreau of Prince Andrew High School for being the sole recipient of our 2019 Scholarship!
The essay Brody wrote touched our hearts so deeply that we did something unprecedented. In the past each scholarship award has been $1,000.00. Due to Brody’s incredible spirit, will to achieve, and determination to overcome every obstacle that comes his way Brody will receive $2,000.00 to help him continue his story.
Congratulations Brody as you go on your next journey. You are exactly who Olivia would have wanted in a friend. We look forward to hearing of your future success 😊
This wonderful young lady is the recipient of the $1000.00 Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust Scholarship and we could not be more pleased!!!
Laila’s essay embodied exactly what we were looking for in an entry. She was thoughtful, insightful and truly captured Olivia’s spirit of acceptance and forgiveness with her activities during her three years at Prince Andrew High School. She no doubt made her school and community a better place for having her in it.
Best of luck to you Laila as you embark on the next part of your life’s journey at Dalhousie University knowing Olivia is with you every step of the way. She most definitely has your back ♥
