St. John’s, NL – The winner of the 2016 Noia-Hibernia Scholarship is Jenna Broders of Conception Bay South. The Queen Elizabeth High School honours student received her $1,000 award at Noia’s 2016 Fall Seminar, which took place today in St. John’s.
Following her graduation from high school with a 94 per cent average, Jenna enrolled in Memorial University where she is currently studying science and engineering with the goal of working in the petroleum industry.
The Noia-Hibernia Scholarship Fund, established in 1997 – which is, of course, the year that the Hibernia platform was completed and started drawing oil – is designed to foster the bright minds that will shape the future of our province’s oil & gas industry.
Presented annually, the award provides $1,000 to a graduating high school student in Newfoundland and Labrador who is entering post-secondary studies with the intention of pursuing a petroleum-related career. It recognizes excellence, not only in academics, but in extra-curricular areas as well.
