Jonah Tremblay is one step closer to his goal of having a career in power engineering.
Tremblay received notification in early May that he is the recipient of the 2015-2016 Shell Canada Dual Credit Power Engineering Bursary. He will receive $5,500 and put it toward his five-week Dual Credit Power Enginering Fourth Class Program in Peace River next October.
He and his family are pleased with the good news.
“I’m happy to (receive the bursary),” he says. “I had to write a 500-word essay for a solid two days.”
Tremblay wrote about his desire to get into power engineering and why the bursary is important to him. His parents are very proud of him for his achievement.
He attends Georges P. Vanier and has been working on his power engineering program since Grade 10. He has completed the program with high grades.
Tremblay is keen about math, so it will fit in perfectly with his chosen career.
A panel at Northern Lakes College in Slave Lake had a telephone interview with Tremblay in early April as part of his application for the bursary.
Despite the job market being what it is, Tremblay is optimistic that he will find employment after completing his program in Peace River.
