Kamloops student quartet will have busy summer

Four Kamloops students will be taking part in a national enrichment and entrepreneurship program for high school students.

The one-month program, which begins July 1, will see the students travel to universities, where they will focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

Two participants are from St. Ann’s Academy — Anson Shapter, a Grade 11 student, will travel to McGill University and Emma Schmidt, a Grade 12 student, will go to Mount Allison University.

The other two students are from South Kamloops secondary. Jaida Barker is going to Ryerson University and Graeme Koppes will be at the University of Calgary.

Both are in Grade 11.

Once they complete the program, the students will become fellows of SHAD, which gives them access to a large peer-to-peer network of other graduates.

Since SHAD’s creation in 1980, 16,300 secondary school students have experienced the program.

SHAD is a Canadian summer enrichment program for high-achieving high school students.
