The Canadian Paint and Coatings Association (CPCA) says Anne N. R. Longakit is the 2017 recipient of its annual scholarship for deserving sons or daughters of staff employed at its member companies.
Longakit is the daughter of one of the staff members of Cloverdale Paint. On the Dean’s Honour List, she is currently enrolled in the third of a four-year Bachelor of Science program at the University of British Columbia, majoring in biology.
“CPCA is proud to support the sons and daughters of member companies and award students who deserve recognition for their high academic achievement,” said CPCA president and CEO Gary LeRoux. “We are certain that Anne’s hard work will only lead to many more successes for her in the future.”
The $2,000 scholarship is awarded to a high school or post-secondary student based solely on their academic achievement. The selection is made by the CPCA Education and Training Committee.
