Members of CFUW Brampton and guests gathered to honour the 2015 Scholarship recipients on June 14, 2016 at Turnberry Golf Course- Nine 18 restaurant. The young women enjoyed meeting each other and sharing experiences from their first year of university. Members had the opportunity to hear about the student's new educational adventures, and how the CFUW scholarship had contributed to supporting those endeavours.
Our speaker was Nikita Brown, the founder and Managing Editor of Bramptonist.com. Nikita, who is well known in the Brampton community as a "go-getter", talked about how she started the site, the team of volunteers who support the site and the importance of the site in making local news and services known within the community. As a graduate of North Park S.S. , she related to the students the importance of openness and enthusiasm when starting such an enterprise. A very energizing conversation for students and members!
A number of students sent along thank you notes following the dinner; saying it had been "truly a great experience" and thanking the club members for hosting the evening.
Both Nine18 and the City of Brampton contributed to funding the students' meals. Many thanks to them for their support.
