Bronwyn Moore

Rossland student accepted to SHAD

Bronwyn Moore, a Grade 11 learner at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning, has been chosen to participate in SHAD.

A Rossland learner will attend a national summer program for exceptional high school students.

Bronwyn Moore, a Grade 11 learner at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning, has been chosen to participate in SHAD a month-long program that allows the opportunity for approximately 700 exceptional Canadian high school students to stay at one of 12 host universities and focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math). After completing the program, students become connected to the SHAD network, which includes 15,000 alumni and 30 Rhodes Scholars.

The program runs from July 3-29 and Moore will be attending the Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s. The campus was her first choice.

“I really wanted to go to Memorial because I used to live in St. John’s and it’s a city that’s full of memories for me, so I wanted to go back there,” she says.

Moore found out about the program through a friend of the family and decided to apply. Now that she’s been accepted, she’s looking forward to the opportunity.

“I think it’s just a really cool opportunity to get to do stuff that you don’t really get to do in high school normally,” Moore says. “It’s kind of a nice place to experience what university is going to be like and get to learn things that you normally wouldn’t get an opportunity to learn, which is really special for a summer camp especially.”
