King's welcomes first President's Scholarship recipient
This fall, The King’s University welcomes the first-ever recipient of the President’s Scholarship, Scott Mora. The scholarship, which covers one year of tuition at King’s, will be awarded every spring to a grade 12 student to who exemplifies King’s values of faith, academic excellence, and care for others. A graduate of Edmonton Christian High School, Scott is entering his first year at King’s with a major in biology and a minor in philosophy. Looking to a future in medicine, Scott says he hopes to be “on the front lines in places around the world without access to healthcare, working with others who want to help.”
Dr. Melanie Humphreys, President of The King’s University, is excited for the future of the President’s Scholarship. “King’s is proud to lift up and support young people of faith who want to pursue a life of Christian service. This scholarship will give students like Scott a strong start on that journey. I can’t wait to see what he, and future recipients, will achieve.”
For its inaugural year, King’s invited applicants from Edmonton Christian High School in recognition of the more than 40-year relationship between the institutions. Both share roots in the Christian Reformed Church and maintain a commitment to advancing the cause of Christian education.
“Having strong relationships with like-minded schools such as Edmonton Christian is a blessing,” says Dr. Humphreys. “So many amazing students have come to us from our Christian K-12 partners; we hope we can also support them in our common mission of practising education from a Christian perspective.”
