AboutFace is proud to announce the recipients of the 6th Annual AboutFace National Scholarship Awards are Miss. Braidy Mackay and Mr. Josh Grossgardt! Both young winners receive a $2,000 scholarship in recognition of their academic achievement and their dedication to community service with both AboutFace and other organizations within their communities. Congratulations!
Miss. Mackay lives with her family in Barrie, Ontario, where she graduated from Eastview Secondary School. Starting this fall, she will be studying Child and Youth Studies at Brock University in St. Catherines, Ontario and she hopes to continue her education by attending graduate school for a degree in law.
Mr. Grossgardt lives with his family in Nanaimo, British Columbia, where he graduated from Nanaimo District Secondary School. In 2014, he will be attending Vancouver Island University for a Child and Youth Care and Criminology Diploma. He also did a testimonial video on his experience at Camp Trailblazers.

The AboutFace National Scholarship Fund was established to recognize the personal and academic achievements of AboutFace youth embarking on post-secondary education. We had amazing applications this year, and it was very difficult to determine two winners from the bunch. They are all deserving individuals who have served their communities well, and we know they will do well in whatever they choose to pursue!

AboutFace would like to recognize SAP Canada Inc. as the 2013 Scholarship Sponsor.
