Bursary recipient Trisha White of Sandy Cove is completing the LPN program at College of the North Atlantic in Corner Brook. Trisha graduated high school from Canon Richards Memorial Academy in 2014.
Trisha was an avid volunteer and sports player in high school. She was a member of the Student Advisory Committee, Safe Grad Committee, played basketball, badminton, softball, and volleyball, and has also worked with the Sandy Cove Lions Club. Additionally, Trisha was involved with the Crystal Edge Figure Skating Club, the Straits Girl Guides, and Canada Day and Come Home Year celebrations planning.
Because of the aging population in the province (especially around rural areas), Trisha says nursing is a great path to choose for herself. She wants to help take care of sick people; something she says she likes to do.
