Sweden House Society awards the 2014 Karl Ståhl Scholarship to Sebastian Gitt & Hanna McFarlane

Van­cou­ver, BC – May 28, 2014

The Swe­den House Soci­ety (SHS) is pleased to announce the 2014 recip­i­ents of the Karl Ståhl Schol­ar­ship, Mr. Sebas­t­ian Gitt & Ms. Hanna McFarlane.

Mr. Gitt is cur­rently fin­ish­ing his high school stud­ies at Sey­cove Sec­ondary School in North Van­cou­ver. In 2013, he was awarded an Out­stand­ing Scholar Award at his school by hav­ing one of the very high­est grade aver­ages (95%). His future plans include stud­ies of aero­space engi­neer­ing. Sebas­t­ian has been accepted at Queens Uni­ver­sity in Kingston Ontario, where he starts his stud­ies in Sep­tem­ber 2014.

Ms. McFar­lane is cur­rently a stu­dent of Dou­glas Col­lege in New West­min­ster, where she par­tic­i­pates in the Aca­d­e­mic Foun­da­tions (Pre-Nursing) Pro­gram since Sep­tem­ber 2013.  She intends to pur­sue a career in Nurs­ing, with the aim of even­tu­ally spe­cial­iz­ing into Neo-Natal care.

Both recip­i­ents have been stu­dents of Swedish School of Van­cou­ver dur­ing a total period of eight years. They both also have an authen­tic inter­est in the Swedish com­mu­nity, as demon­strated by their exten­sive vol­un­teer­ing at dif­fer­ent events arranged by the Swedish Cul­tural Soci­ety and the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre in Burn­aby. The schol­ar­ship com­mit­tee awarded Sebas­t­ian and Hanna for their aca­d­e­mic achieve­ments, defined future career plans and strong vol­un­teer record. They are both excel­lent role mod­els for future schol­ar­ship can­di­dates, in that we pri­or­i­tize can­di­dates with a strong involve­ment — even pas­sion – for the local Swedish community.

The Karl Ståhl Schol­ar­ship of $1,000, made pos­si­ble through dona­tions through the Ståhl fam­ily, will aid with the stu­dents’ ini­tial tuition.

About Swe­den House Society

Swe­den House Soci­ety (SHS) is an umbrella organ­i­sa­tion for nine Swedish net­works and asso­ci­a­tions in the Lower Main­land.  The main focus of SHS is to sup­port the main­te­nance and devel­op­ment of the Scan­di­na­vian Cen­tre in Burn­aby, since many of the activ­i­ties of the mem­ber groups take place there.  Its board coor­di­nates activ­i­ties and pools resources of its mem­ber groups.  SHS also stream­lines com­mu­ni­ca­tions and col­lab­o­ra­tions within the Swedish com­mu­nity in BC, and pro­vides schol­ar­ships to post-secondary stu­dents with a Swedish connection.

Through our unwa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to Swedish val­ues, we bring the unique cul­tural expe­ri­ence to life for every mem­ber through every ini­tia­tive. To share in the expe­ri­ence, please visit us at http://scandinaviancentre.org/sweden/
