A Chilliwack grad recently received a $40,000 scholarship.

Kiera Ludlow, a Grade 12 Chilliwack secondary (CSS) student, was awarded the prestigious post-secondary scholarship from The Cmolik Foundation on May 13 in recognition of her achievements in overcoming adversity and excelling in her studies.

“Kiera is very deserving of this award as she always displays excellent citizenship and integrity,” said Brian Fehlauer, CSS principal.

The selection committee with the foundation was impressed with Ludlow’s application, her academic goals and her future career aspirations. The award recognizes and honours her hard work and commitment and the foundation and is keen to support her as she pursues a Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Victoria.

“I have no doubt that Kiera will achieve all of her dreams. She is a good investment into all our futures,” said Korilea Soltys, CSS career advisor.

In addition to providing students with the funding, the Cmolik Foundation provides students with other tools including access to a mentor, a supportive community of scholarship peers and alumni, as well as access to ongoing special events (virtual during the pandemic) and professional opportunities.

“I am extremely thankful for this opportunity this scholarship has granted me for my future,” Ludlow said. “The Cmolik Foundation is an amazing organization and the staff are very kind. I am so excited to be a part of the alumni for years to come.”
