Reverend Vasant Saklikar Memorial Scholarship

The New Westminster City Council and the New Westminster School District recently collaborated on a community scholarship agreement.  This award allows for select students from the Royal City's sister city of Lijiang, China to attend school at New Westminster Secondary School.  The Reverend Vasant Saklikar Memorial Scholarship recognizes the community work of Reverend Saklikar and addresses one of his hopes:  to provide education to deserving children who, without community support, would not have the opportunity to pursue life-changing possibilities.
