4-H Canada Announces Four Recipients of Highly Sought-After L.E.A.D. Scholarship

L.E.A.D. is 4-H Canada’s most prestigious and highly-sought after scholarship

October 16, 2018 – 4-H Canada and CN are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 4-H Canada Leadership Excellence Awards of Distinction (L.E.A.D.).

L.E.A.D., 4-H Canada’s most prestigious and highly-sought after scholarship, is made possible through a generous partnership with CN, a long-time supporter of 4-H Canada and strong champion for advancing leadership in communities across Canada.

This annual award recognizes four youth leaders: outstanding, accomplished youth who embody the 4-H youth movement and demonstrate personal development, community impact, and leadership excellence in each of 4-H Canada’s four Leadership Development Pillars.

The 2018 4-H Canada L.E.A.D. recipients are:

McAuley Bellows, (NL), recipient for the Community Engagement & Communications Pillar

Emma Kaliel (AB), recipient for the Science & Technology Pillar

Audrey Morneau (QC), recipient for the Environment & Healthy Living Pillar

Emmett Sawyer (AB), recipient for the Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security Pillar

“Every year I am amazed with the quality of applicants for this scholarship, and as a positive youth development organization, we are thrilled to recognize these four exceptional youth leaders,” said Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada. “It is for this reason we are fortunate to partner with a company like CN that truly understands and shares the values represented by L.E.A.D. – and by the L.E.A.D. scholars themselves.”

Each L.E.A.D. recipient receives a $20,000 scholarship towards four-year post-secondary studies. They are also matched with a high-impact mentor who plays a leadership role in their industry and community. This mentorship relationship is an important component of the award program, supporting L.E.A.D. recipients as they move forward in their careers.

“Congratulations to the recipients of the 2018 L.E.A.D. scholarships” said Sean Finn, Executive Vice-President of Corporate Services and Chief Legal Officer. “CN and 4-H Canada share a similar vision of building safe, strong and vibrant communities across Canada. We are very proud to continue our partnership with 4-H Canada and helping cultivate the next generation of responsible, thoughtful and contributing leaders.”
