When the time came for me to choose a university I visited Mount Allison and fell completely in love,” says the first-year biology student. “There are so many opportunities here for personal growth, and it was immediately clear to me that Mount A is where I belong.”
Scully is the recipient of a Bell Achievement Award, one of Mount Allison’s top entrance awards, recognizing outstanding academic, extracurricular, and community achievements.
Outside the classroom and the lab, Scully is also a member of the Mount Allison rugby team and volunteers with the Association for Chronically Ill and Disabled (ACID) student group on campus.
“The great thing about Mount A is that there is something for everyone,” she says. “I have been to dance classes, yoga classes, health care outreach meetings, fencing, and many other intriguing clubs and societies.”
A graduate of Bonar Law Memorial High School in Rexton, NB, Scully participated in many sports in high school including soccer, volleyball, wrestling, and track and field. She also participated in the National Student Commonwealth Forum in Ottawa.
“I had the opportunity to go to Toronto for the Nike high school Grand Prix, with my track team, which was an incredible experience,” says the former VP of her student council. “I was also given the chance to organize track meets at my school for different age groups as well as volunteer at these meets, which was wonderful.”
