Two local students have received $1,000 scholarships from the Delta Retired Teachers Association.

Michael Hall is an outstanding Delview student who served as a role model for the anti-bullying program he presented annually to junior students.

As president of the school-based “First Responders,” he was regularly on call in medical emergencies.

An athlete, he played soccer for 13 years on rep teams and coached juniors.

Hall will enroll in the UBC kinesiology program, leading to medical school.

Rachel Hislop-Hook, a hardworking, focused scholar enjoys community service opportunities. She volunteered extensively for KinVillage, Food on the Corner, Camp Qwanoes, Delta Youth Advisory Council and Rotary Interact Club.

At Delta Secondary, Hislop-Hook participated in student government leadership and tutored math.

She will pursue sciences and medical studies in Edmonton.

The scholarships are awarded annually to two graduating Delta students in recognition of their academic achievement as well as school and community volunteerism.
