A Falher Ecole Heritage Grade 11 student has been awarded a Verna J. Kirkness Science and Engineering Education Program Scholarship.

Conseil scolaire du Nord-Ouest [CSNO] and École Héritage congratulate Katelyn Lambert on the achievement.

The scholarship is offered to First Nations, Métis and Inuit Grade 11 students to spend a week as a student researcher at a Canadian university. The program is part of the Verna J. Kirkness Education Foundation whose aim is to “Increase the number of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students graduating from science and engineering programs in Canada.”

Thanks to the scholarship, Lambert will experience a unique learning opportunity from May 3-8, 2020, as a student researcher at the University of Saskatchewan, in the field of Kinesiology. During the week, Lambert will have the opportunity to interact with scientists in their research laboratories, be part of a research team, meet students and role models, experience student residence and campus life, learn about the support systems that are available on campus and discover the captivating nature of scientific research.

CSNO’s school board applauds Lambert for her accomplishment and wishes her the best of luck during her internship, and projects.
