Nathan Reme, a student at Delta Secondary School, has been awarded a $45,000 post-secondary scholarship with The Cmolik Foundation in recognition of his achievements in overcoming adversity and excelling in his studies. The Selection Committee was impressed with Reme’s application, his academic goals and his future career aspirations.  The award recognizes and honours Reme’s hard work and commitment with this financial award and is keen to support Reme pursuing interests in a degree in Civil Engineering.

Ms. Bryarley Gillis, counsellor at Delta Secondary says, “knowing Nathan over these last three years, I can truly say that he is one of the most mature, responsible, resilient, and hard-working students I have ever met. I believe Nathan is very deserving of this award and will excel in the post-secondary field.”

Mr. Reme says, “I hope to attain a Bachelors of Applied Science degree in Civil Engineering from UBC. I selected this area of study due to my interest in understanding the way things work, which is something that has intrigued me since I was a child.”

The Cmolik Foundation believes in the power of education to transform a student’s life journey. In addition to providing students with the funding to realize their dreams, the Foundation provides students with a Mentor, a supportive community of scholarship peers and alumni, as well as access to ongoing special events and professional opportunities. Students become part of a larger community dedicated to their post-secondary success.
