Guelph gal wins big

Guelph’s Makyla Walerickton has won a top entrance scholarship at Mount Allison University. The Bell Scholarship, worth $48,000 over four years, is one of the most valuable and distinguished entrance awards at the New Brunswick university, a news release said. The award goes to students who have demonstrated strong academic ability, leadership potential, volunteer work, extracurricular activities, work experience and good citizenship. Walerickton attended Guelph Collegiate before graduating from the international baccalaureate program at Lester B. Pearson United World college of the Pacific in Victoria, B.C. She is currently studying geography, but would eventually like to become a midwife. “My philosophy is to do what I enjoy, and right now I am enjoying learning geography,” she said. “I don’t think I will have one career for the rest of my life. I feel if I continue to be myself as much as I can and live the values that I believe in, opportunities will arise.”
