A Ballenas Secondary graduate has been awarded a $12,000 Dean’s scholarship to attend Trinity Western University (TWU) in Langley this fall.
Jessie Lublinkhof was awarded the scholarship from TWU based on her high academic standing. During her time at Ballenas, Lublinkhof was involved in the Air Cadets for six years. She was also part of the B.C. Provincial Target Shooting Team. She said she loved the challenge.
“I love the fact that it is a sport where you are always trying to beat your personal best, and that because it is such a small community you get to know most people in the sport from all over Canada,” she said.
Her favorite subject was biology, she said. Lublinkhof will be taking a pre-medicine degree at Trinity Western University with a focus in cell and developmental biology.
After graduating from TWU she plans on doing a medical degree and becoming a doctor, eventually specializing in either pediatrics or oncology.
Trinity Western University is Canada’s premier Christian university of the arts, sciences and professions.
