Kaya Hund of Comox has been named the recipient of a $2,000 scholarship from Foresters Financial, which could grow to be $8,000 over four years.

Hund received the Foresters Financial scholarship based on a strong academic performance, coupled with charitable activity in the community.

Hund graduated from Mark R. Isfeld Secondary in Courtenay this year.

She said her volunteer work at The Views is an experience she will always cherish.

“I volunteered at The Views since the beginning of Grade 9 and had a wonderful experience getting to spend time with the residents there. We usually came a little before dinner time so we would play board games or have conversations with them then assist with getting everyone ready for dinner. My last year I got to be a supervisor; however, that was cut short because of COVID-19.”

Hund is taking political science online at UVic this year, with plans to attend law school in the future.
