Delta High School Students Awarded Scholarships by DHCHF

June 29, 2018

Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation held its annual scholarship presentation at Delta Hospital on May 28, 2018. In attendance were the successful recipients and their families as well as Foundation staff and Board members.


In its twenty-second year, the Robert T. Reynolds scholarship of $1,500 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 city. 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. This year’s recipient, Helen Lord, a South Delta Senior Secondary student, excels in academics, maintaining an exceptionally high GPA. She also has proven leadership skills and has been highly involved in many school and community clubs, including serving as co-President for the Me-to-We Club. Helen plans to attend Queen’s University to pursue a Bachelor of Science on her path to becoming a surgeon.


In its inaugural year, the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation Scholarship of $1,500 is awarded to a deserving student pursuing a post secondary education with plans of a career in either healthcare or philanthropy. Participation in extracurricular activities, engagement as a volunteer and demonstrated leadership capacity will have a major bearing of an applicant’s success. Well-rounded North Delta Senior Secondary student Monika Sindhu is this scholarship’s first recipient.  Monika is a top scholar and has held various leadership positions, including Student Council President. She also is the co-chair of the debating team and has volunteered countless hours to many causes and initiatives. Monika plans to attend University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Science and hopes to become a Pediatrician.


“On behalf the Foundation and the Reynolds’ family, I congratulate both Helen and Monika on their accomplishments,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director of Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “We are honoured to give both young women a helping hand and wish them all the best for the future. We are confident they will achieve great things in the years to come.”
