City Council recognized Kai Sun and Robert Nadal as the 2018 recipients of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship yesterday – a $2,000 scholarship, awarded annually to recognize two high school students with the highest scholastic achievement based on the average of the student’s best six subjects in their graduating year.
Kai graduated with an average of 98.5% from A.B. Lucas Secondary School and will be attending the University of Waterloo in the fall to study Computer Science and Mathematics. Kai is an award-winning math student who enjoys building machine learning projects and hopes to pursue a career in machine learning engineering.
Robert graduated with an average of 98.17% from Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School and is also attending the University of Waterloo in the fall to study software engineering. Robert enjoys learning about the sciences and working with technology to create things. He hopes to work as a software engineer for a top technology company, but is also interested in creating a tech start-up business.
“We are proud to be able to recognize the hard work and dedication shown by these young Londoners,” said Mayor Matt Brown. “Their many achievements in high school lead me to believe there are great things ahead for these two in university.”
Sponsored by the Corporation of the City of London, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarships were established in 1981 to recognize academic excellence among graduating London high school students pursuing post-secondary education.
