Genevieve Kilburn-Smith wins Blyth Cambridge Scholarship!

Dear friends – Great news!
Genny is one of two winners (across Canada) of the Blyth Cambridge scholarship! We are still taking it in – Genny is feeling quite over the moon. We found out in mid-January that Genny had been accepted into Cambridge, and then a week later that she had won the scholarship and could actually go!

See below for the announcement on the Blyth website:

She’s got her work cut out for her now, needing to keep up her top marks at school, diploma exams and AP exams (the most important), as well as all the community involvement which helped get her the award. But she’s up for it!
Thank you for all of your support of Genny in her journey to Cambridge!
