LP Miller Student, Denzel Whitecap earns an opportunity for the Verna J Kirkness Science Scholarship:  

Denzel Whitecap and nine other Saskatchewan Aboriginal 11th grade students have earned the opportunity to travel to the University of Saskatchewan to participate in science and engineering labs with professors and graduate students May 16-20 this year. Check out the following website for more information about the program  www.vernajkirkness.org  There are some amazing opportunities that these volunteer professors and grad students are providing for our Aboriginal youth.    

"Our participating students not only have an experience in these labs, but also get to know the campus and experience a bit of what it might be like to go to university.  We also have a lovely feast, events planned every night, and bring local Aboriginal Elders in to share their traditional knowledge with the students." 

Congratulations to Denzel on this great accomplishment!
