Two received education awards

Two Abbotsford residents are among 48 students from across B.C. to have their outstanding efforts recognized with Coast Capital Savings Education Awards this year.

Kyle Epp was awarded the credit union’s Citizenship Award valued at $2,000 for his achievements in juggling school, personal activities and community involvement.

On top of a full course load, Epp volunteers every week helping the homeless in Surrey by providing food and clothing.

Melody Pilkey, also of Abbotsford, took home a $5,000 Standing Tall Award for making a positive impact on her community in the face of personal challenges.

“I can’t express how thankful I am to be recognized with an education award from Coast Capital Savings,” said Pilkey, who is studying nursing at TWU.

“I know there were many deserving applicants this year and to be among such outstanding recipients is a huge honour.”

This year Coast Capital Savings presented a total of $144,000 to deserving students from across the province.
