With a seven-subject average of 95.3 per cent, student Kayla Busch was awarded the 2012 Dubinsky Family Scholarship.
Mayor Glenn Hagel presented the award during Monday’s regular council meeting.
“I am very, very proud to present the scholarship to Kayla Busch,” said Hagel during Monday’s meeting. “Kayla’s not here because, not surprisingly, she’s away studying right now. But she has very, very proud mother and father who are here (at council) to accept the award on her behalf.”
Busch graduated from Peacock Collegiate and has begun studies at the University of Saskatchewan studying arts and sciences with a goal of pursuing medicine. In a letter to city council from the selection committee, it stated outside of the classroom Busch played volleyball, softball and did track and field and wrestling. She was a coach and mentor in softball and wrestling and volunteered at the Bantam Softball Westerns and 2010 Saskatchewan Winter Games. Outside of the world of sports, Busch was a volunteer tutor, volunteered at the food bank and helped make Operation Christmas Child and the Kinsmen Santa Parade successful.
Other items considered during Monday’s meeting:
• Council approved the exemption of the entire off-street parking requirement for 20 off-street parking spaces at 12 High St. E. in exchange for a payment of $5,000 per exempted space. The request came from Shaw Chartrand, vice president of Zarkor Construction Ltd. who requested to move forward with the parking spots for future development of 40 suits in the Walter Scott Building.
