Monica Maitland, who was a student at Central Toronto Academy, has won this year’s safety scholarship from Toronto Police 14 Division. Pictured above from left is Staff Sgt. Tam Bui, Monica Maitland, and Brian Burchell, Scholarship Chair (and publisher of this newspaper). Monica overcame significant family hardships but still managed to make her community a safer more welcoming place. One of the many things she has done is to organize gift bags of essentials for homeless people in her neighbourhood. She approached corporate stores to make donations for these essentials. Thanks to the scholarship, Monica is now enrolled at Seneca College where she intends to study Behavioral Psychology.
