Delta - In a group of truly remarkable and deserving applicants, Delta Hospital Foundation announces that Meghan Lindsay, a graduating student from Burnsview Secondary in North Delta, is this year’s recipient of the Robert T. Reynolds Memorial Scholarship. Delta Hospital Foundation presented Meghan with the scholarship Tuesday, May 23rd at the Delta Hospital. Mrs. Reynolds, wife of late Robert T. Reynolds, and son, Hugh were in attendance to congratulate Meghan on her scholarship.

In its 21st year, this annual scholarship of $1,000 is given in recognition of Mr. Robert T. Reynolds’ dedicated community leadership. Mr. Reynolds was a member of one of Delta’s pioneering families that worked tirelessly towards the development of a hospital in this municipality. His tenacity and perseverance were contributing factors in the founding of the hospital in 1977. Mr. Reynolds went on to become one of Delta Hospital Centennial Society’s first Chairmen.

The scholarship is open to all Grade 12 students residing in Delta who intend to undertake post-secondary education. Meghan Lindsay is an amazing young woman who consistently achieves excellence in both her academic and sporting pursuits. She has maintained a very high grade point average throughout high school and, as a member and captain of the Delta Coastal Selects Metro, she has competed at a high level in soccer, as well as in many other sports. Meghan has also coached the junior girls’ teams in soccer, basketball and volleyball. While balancing both academics and sport, Meghan still finds time to volunteer at the NorthCrest Care Seniors Centre, helping create a positive living environment for its residents. Meghan has been accepted to University of British Columbia’s Science program for next fall. She will pursue her goals of attending medical school and becoming a physician.

 “On behalf Delta Hospital Foundation and the Reynolds’ family, I congratulate Meghan on her accomplishments,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director of Delta Hospital Foundation. “We are honoured to give Meghan a helping hand and wish her all the best for the future. We have every confidence this wonderful young woman will achieve great things in the years to come.”
