Last year’s Junior Citizen of the Year hasn’t decided to settle for that title.
John Paul II Collegiate student Emily Simon is participating in national selections in Toronto on Feb. 1 and 2 as part of the Loran Awards.
The top prize for the Loran Award is valued at $100,000 over four years of undergraduate studies in Canada. The Loran Scholars Foundation grants 34 Loran Awards.
Simon is among top 88 of 5,089 candidates, and is eligible to receive a $5,000 finalist award.
JPII nominated Simon and has already gone through a day of regional interviews.
