LETTER: Thank you Quesnel for supporting 2020 grads

More than $100,000 donated in scholarships, awards and bursaries

Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Quesnel community for their support of the Correlieu and McNaughton Centre grad classes of 2020.

This year’s grad class missed out on many of the traditional events, however, the community has shown their incredible support once again, to make this graduation a memorable honour for the graduates.

Thank you everyone who drove to the various schools to see the graduates at the 2020 Showcase Drive-By.

A huge thank you, as well, to the local businesses and organizations who donated over $100,000 in cash that has been awarded to graduates as scholarship, awards and bursaries. These awards inspire and help our young people to continue post-secondary education.

On behalf of the Correlieu and McNaughton Centre grad classes of 2020, thank you Quesnel!

Graduation was a success and we could not have done it without the support of our community.
