Waterford ON’s Seth Winward is the recipient of a 2015 Bell Scholarship, Mount Allison University’s top entrance award.
"My show (on CHMA 106.9) is Spotlight, focusing on a different specific niche of music," he says. "I’m also involved in the creative writing society, student publishing, and the fencing club. I plan to begin my own student-led volunteering organization later this year (stay tuned!)"
Winward started his own student-led social justice committee in high school, organizing and engaging in dozens of diverse fundraisers for causes including girls' education, child soldier rehabilitation, local homelessness, and more. He ran this club single-handedly for three years, growing in size from five people to 33 upon his graduation from Waterford District High School. He was also involved with various community groups including the Rotary Club, Me to We, and Free the Children.
