I Andrew Le Bret, a now completed CNC Carpentry student here in Quesnel would like to thank you for your kindness of your company in awarding me this scholarship. I was unaware of the situation I had won this until they announced this at my grad ceremony that was held a few weeks back. I am pleased to say I passed my final exam with 70%, and came in the top ten of my class and received a over all mark of 81 %. The $500 will go a long way in helping me acquire the tools I will need as I apply them towards my new trade in life. I've had many set backs in life but keep pushing onwards and its with a company like yours who has helped believe in me which can allow me to also believe in myself. So thank you so much for this, it won't ever be forgotten.
Andrew Le Bret
