Earlier this month, VPD Cadet Inspector Jasleen Bahia was selected as one of 35 recipients to receive the 2019 Loran Scholarship Award which is valued at $100,000 over 4 years. Jasleen was chosen from nearly a pool of 5,100 applicants and has credited her involvement in the VPD Cadets Program for her success.
Jasleen is a third year Cadet in the program and has maintained excellent grades while being a competitive player as the captain of her high school basketball team. Like many VPD Cadets, Jasleen has faced much adversity in her home life but with her hard work and dedication to the VPD Cadet Program, she was promoted to Cadet Inspector–the top-ranking title in the VPD Cadet Program. She is currently a senior at Britannia Secondary School and has gained early acceptance into the UBC Sauder School of Business as well as several other post-secondary schools.
Congratulations Jasleen on your much-deserved scholarship award! We look forward to hearing about your future success.
