Emma Archibald

Emma ArchibaldThere was tremendous excitement recently at Charles P. Allen High School with the announcement that Emma Archibald, a grade 12 IB Diploma student, had been awarded the McEuen Scholarship to attend prestigious University of St. Andrews in the medieval town of St. Andrews, Scotland. The University of St. Andrews is the third oldest in the English speaking world and will celebrate its 600th anniversary in 2014. Emma was one of several Canadian finalists for the scholarship and was flown to Toronto on April 26th for an interview with the selection committee. In making the award to Emma a representative of the selection committee commented, “Emma was an amazing candidate and stood out in a very impressive field of candidates.”

Emma gives full credit for the support from “her wonderful team of IB teachers at CP Allen and in particular Heather Michael, her IB Coordinator.” The McEuen Scholarship, worth over $200,000, is awarded to only one Canadian each year. It covers all expenses over the four years of undergraduate studies.
