Scholarship for UNBC Student

Sunday, August 21, 2016 @ 11:45 AM

Prince George, B.C.-A University of Northern BC graduate student  has received one of four Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC scholarships.Hannah Sungaila is working towards becoming a Registered Professional Biologist and has completed her first  year of a Master of Science Degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies.

“The scholarship will help me complete my master’s degree, allowing me to achieve a higher level of project management” says  Sungaila,  who is one of four  students in BC to receive a $1500 scholarship from the  Society.

Sandra Noel, Director of Human Resources for the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC says  students in this province are making  incredible strikes in research and innovation in their fields ” We are thrilled to be able to support their continuing educational endeavours.”



Incredible ” strides” perhaps ? Some sites have a typo/error/ spelling report button because no one is perfect .

    This would require a context checker.

    One can make “incredible strikes” if the context is appropriate. Even grammatically it would be correct

    I suggest the following as appropriate context examples: bowling, lightning, soccer, meteorites, aerial warfare, etc.

She is going for a “Master of Science Degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies.”

Now that the Harper Conservatives have been booted to the curb, her future looks bright as far as employment goes… congratulations on your scholarships Hannah!

    I’m certainly no Harper fan, but the election was almost a year ago now. Maybe it’s time to move on and focus on what’s happening now?

      “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”
      ~ Winston Churchill

      Never again will we allow Canada to be “Con”ed!!!

      With all the Canadian politicians on summer holidays, all we have is “Lexusgate”. Back to watching the desperate Donald tRump.

    Her future will be very bright as far as employment goes. You’ll most likely be required to use her services every time you want to build something on ‘your’ land. She’ll have to do a ‘study’ first, for which you will pay handsomely, regardless of its outcome.

      It might be “your” land, but it stops at the high water mark where “our” river or lake is located that “your” land drains into.

      So, learn to take proper care of “your” land so that “our” river and its fish survive your time on this earth.

      That is what it is all about, respecting not only “your” rights but also “our” rights.

    JGalt, you need to get out more! Justin and Co. certainly don’t seem to be so wonderful for our scientists, haha!

    “The so-called ‘war on science’

    It’s become increasingly clear that former prime minister Stephen Harper’s supposed “war on science” was little more than a myth concocted by special interests and furthered by the media.

    In a memo obtained by Postmedia, the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada – the union for scientists — complains the Trudeau government is continuing the communications policy started by the Harper government.

    The media and opposition during the Harper years were reckless in taking a handful of stories about disgruntled former federal scientists and turning them into a grand narrative that wasn’t backed up by facts.

    The so-called war on science could have done with its own dose of scientific research.”

Congratulations Hannah. You are obviously a capable student and we wish you good fortune. Also a thank you to the fishermen and women of the Province that keep Freshwater Fisheries going.

Nice to see her get some recognition for her hard work.
Thank you to the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC as well.
