A Georges P. Vanier Secondary School grad student has been selected as a Loran Scholars finalist.
Tristan Rendell, a Grade 12 student at Vanier, was among only 72 students selected from over 6,000 applications to be interviewed at Loran’s 2021 National Selection.
Rendell was selected as a Loran finalist and received a one-time award valued at $5,000 for use at any Canadian public university.
“I feel incredibly lucky to have been selected as a Loran award finalist,” Rendell said. “I would like to thank all the teachers and staff at Vanier, my parents and my peers. I would have never gotten this far without so many amazing supportive people helping me along the way.”
The Loran Scholars Foundation supports promising young Canadians who show strength of character and a commitment to serve in their communities, challenging them to fully realize their leadership potential. Loran believes that integrity, courage, grit and personal autonomy are better indicators of a young person’s overall potential than standard academic measures. To discover these traits, they administer the most comprehensive and thorough scholarship selection process in Canada.
