Scholarships for three

Surrey students Emily Potusek, Prem Sai Ramani and Konrad Sanderson get money from Envision Financial.

Surrey students Emily Potusek, Prem Sai Ramani and Konrad Sanderson have each won a 2013 education award from Envision Financial and are that much closer to achieving their educational dreams.

Fourteen such scholarships are awarded annually to secondary and post-secondary students throughout the province who are Envision member-owners and have demonstrated outstanding scholastic ability and exceptional community volunteer service.

This year Envision Financial also provided two $2,500 education awards to secondary and post-secondary students who showed outstanding community volunteerism with their local food bank. Surrey student Konrad Sanderson was a recipient.

Since 1996, the Envision Financial Education Award has helped a total of 196 high-school and post-secondary students finance their educations, and has disbursed over $500,000 in funding across British Columbia.
