Business student wins national scholarship

A business administration student was been named one of four winners from across the country of a $20,000 scholarship toward his university career.

McAuley Bellows of Irishtown-Summerside was awarded the L.E.A.D. (Leadership Excellence Awards of Distinction) that recognize outstanding 4-H’ers who have become exceptional leaders through their 4-H experience, and who share the best of themselves with their community.

“Winning this award means a lot more than just receiving the money,” said Mr. Bellows, a first-year student, “it is also the recognition I have received for the hard work and dedication I have put into my high school career. I started volunteering in Grade 8 and I continued all the way through while also playing on multiple sports teams.”

Some of his volunteer experiences include: student council, Breakfast Program and The Premier’s Youth Council and he received the Gold Award in the Duke of Edinburgh.

“Winning this award also brings recognition to the community and our 4-H group that has been so supportive of youth on the North Shore.”

In addition to the scholarship, Mr. McAuley will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend the 4-H Leadership Awards, ongoing mentorship from an expert in their field of study and the opportunity to be a 4-H L.E.A.D. spokesperson.
