2016 Fred Coxworthy Scholarship
December 02, 2016
The Association for New Canadians would like to extend its sincerest congratulations to Rukiya Jelal Yusuf for being named the recipient of the 2016 Fred Coxworthy Scholarship!
Fred Coxworthy was a longstanding and dedicated volunteer with the Association for many years, and his impressive knowledge, immense kindness, and everlasting dedication contributed much to what the organization is today.
This $500 annual scholarship was established in 2013 to honour Fred and to highlight the hard work of a student attending the ANC’s Language Training Centre. Indeed, Rukiya’s success in the Association’s ESL Program and the Adult Basic Education (ABE) Programs at Rabbittown and Academy Canada is a true testament to her hard work since arriving in Canada in 2014 as a Government-Assisted Refugee from Sudan.
Rukiya is currently completing Level 3 ABE at Academy Canada and plans to attend Memorial University to study nursing. She is certainly a highly ambitious and dedicated woman and is a very deserving recipient of this award.
