McMaster and UofT makes their #2019SLSquad picks!
Eight more awesome students join the SL Network. McMaster and UofT were once again amongst the top five partner universites in terms of scholarship applications and in turn were able to award two additional scholarships each this year.
Joining the McMaster Squad is science student Henry Gage. A graduate of Upper Canada College in Toronto, ON, he was chosen as a Lang Scholar in 2016, an honour granted to a select number of UCC students demonstrating leadership potential with combined outstanding achievement in academics, athletics and community service. He was one of few students to have been honoured with this distinction as early as grade ten. Joining Henry is fellow science student Jessie Meanwell from Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton, ON. Jessie created a graphic novel series called Math Adventures to present mathematical concepts in a creative and accessible way. Her first book about the Fibonacci sequence sheds new light on the beauty of math in the real world. She was awarded the Sameer Grover Math Literacy Award for this original work. Pursuing engineering at McMaster is Arielle Ainabe. Nominated by Garth Webb Secondary School in Oakville, ON, she won 2nd Place for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Award at the International Science and Engineering Fair in May 2018. Arjun Snider is also studying engineering at McMaster. A graduate of Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School in Burlington, ON, he previously won the Deloitte Design Thinking/Western Ivey Case Competition at the Ivey Summer Leadership Program (SLP). Out of six competing teams, he was a key member of the team that won the competition.
