GNS students earn coveted university experiences

Glenlyon Norfolk students Ammar Inayatali, Lynaea Korol-Filbey, and Ali Marriott pursue their potential

Glenlyon Norfolk students Ammar Inayatali, Lynaea Korol-Filbey, and Ali (Alexandra) Marriott  pursue their potential and participate in the award-winning Shad Valley science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program this month.

They were selected from more than 1,200 applicants across Canada. The life-changing, life-directing experience will take the students on a four-week journey designed to push their intellectual, creative and leadership skills to the next level.

“Centred on STEM and innovation, Shad is where Canada’s top youth achievers are exposed to great ideas, inspired to look at things differently and challenged to reach for the highest levels of excellence,” said Barry Bisson, Shad president. “Shad sparks personal growth and healthy self-confidence in Canada’s next generation of STEM leaders and change makers – a group that needs special attention and support beyond regular high school classroom settings.”

 

Inayatali, Korol-Filbey, and Marriott are among only 620 youth selected to spend July immersed at one of Shad Valley’s 12 host universities from coast to coast. Now in its 34th year, Shad is acknowledged and respected by universities and employers globally. Those selected have top marks, a strong community focus, and come from diverse backgrounds.
