Doctors of BC has awarded its two annual scholarships of $1000 to Ms Katherine Ryeburn of Prince Rupert and Mr Ian Grabher of Nanaimo. As usual, there was an abundance of highly impressive applicants, so the recipients are truly outstanding.
Ms Ryeburn is a top student at her high school, plays volleyball and soccer, practises tae kwon do, and is a runner, swimmer, dancer, choir member, and community volunteer. She’s also a lifeguard with her standard first aid and other certifications. She plans to complete her health sciences degree at UNBC then apply to medical school.
Mr Grabher is also an accomplished individual, with awards in French, piano, basketball, and cross-country. He has extensive volunteer experience and is known as both a coach and a leader in his school community. He has been accepted to UBC and plans to study international relations.
For more than 15 years, Doctors of BC has presented two $1000 scholarship awards to children of members in good standing who are completing high school and planning to continue studies at a recognized postsecondary institution.
