Quadra Island’s Liah Windrim was chosen as Valedictorian for all students graduating in spring or summer of 2017 at LaSalle College in Vancouver at ceremonies on Nov. 14.

The Valedictorian is chosen from the entire graduating student body based on a scoring system which evaluates campus and community involvement, leadership and teamwork, public speaking experience and finally, grade point average. Windrim was chosen as the most well rounded student in all courses of study and because of her intelligence, drive and dedication. This young woman from Quadra Island outscored an international group ranging in age from about 20 years of age to over 35 years of age. Her graduating grade of 3.98 out of 4.0 was top for all students in any course of study graduating this year at LaSalle College Vancouver.

Windrim was the inaugural winner of the Wanting Qu Rising Star Scholarship in the fall of 2017. The $20,000 scholarship goes to a high school graduate entering the professional recording arts program at LaSalle College.
