Today, The Children’s Foundation is celebrating it’s 19th annual ‘Reach for Success Youth Awards’ ceremony. It seems fitting to hold the ceremony at Loyalist College, as a number of the Bursary Recipients will be returning to, or starting their studies at the College this fall. Tonight, we will award 36 Reach for Success Bursaries! We are also recognizing 52 children and youth who will receive a Youth Award to recognize their achievement in one of six categories: Academics, Arts, Sports & Recreation, Volunteer & Public Service, Culture & Heritage and Personal Best.
