We are very grateful that the Confederation of University Women – Comox Valley, chose our daughter Charlotte as a recipient of one of two annual bursaries this year.
Born in Comox, Charlotte received an excellent education here in the Comox Valley at Brooklyn Elementary, Cape Lazo Middle, and Highland Secondary schools, and at North Island College.
Charlotte completed her second year of studies in Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of British Columbia in April, and maintains two jobs in Vancouver to enable her to continue pursuing her degree.
As the fourth of five children, Charlotte has always worked hard, beginning nannying at the age of 12 for a family of three children; working hard at her studies; enjoying community life including soccer, dance at Pantuso Dance, and a myriad of events; and contributing at school and in the community in a variety of volunteer capacities.
As such, it is of great comfort to her, beyond the financial reward of this bursary, to know that a group of accomplished, hard-working, and caring women such as yourselves is thinking of her and supporting her.
Thank you to each and every one of you.
Lisa, Don, and Charlotte Grant
