MP Jim Eglinski Congratulates Janelle Weslowski On Winning Prestigious Scholarship
March 3, 2017
My sincere congratulations go out to Janelle Weslowski, a student of West Central High School, in Rocky Mountain House, who was recently selected as one of Canada’s 33 Loran Scholars. She was chosen from an initial pool of 4,438 applicants based on evidence of character, commitment to service in the community and long-term leadership potential.
Loran Scholars Foundation is a national charity that works in partnership with universities, donors and volunteers throughout the country to invest in young Canadians who demonstrate character, commitment to service and leadership potential.
The Loran Award is valued at $100,000 over four years of undergraduate study, including an annual stipend, tuition waivers from one of 25 Canadian universities, mentorship, summer internship funding, an orientation expedition in Algonquin Park as well as annual retreats and forums. Six Alberta students are among the 33 selected this year.
Janelle is active in community theatre through choreography, choir and acting. She leads her church’s youth group, which volunteers in soup kitchens and organizes community cleanups.
“Janelle, congratulations on your success and good luck in your journey to the future as you continue to learn,” concluded MP Eglinski.
