St. John’s, NL (November 15, 2017) — Mikayla Chislett of Heart’s Delight is the winner of the 2017 Noia-Hibernia Scholarship. The Crescent Collegiate graduate received her $1,000 award at the Noia Fall Seminar, which took place today in St. John’s.
Following her graduation from high school with a cumulative average of 95 per cent, Mikayla enrolled in Memorial University where she is currently studying engineering with the goal of working in the offshore oil & gas industry as an engineer.
The Noia-Hibernia scholarship was established in 1997 – the year the Hibernia platform was completed and started drawing oil. It is designed to foster the bright minds that will shape the future of our province’s oil & gas industry.
Valued at $1,000, the award is presented annually to a graduating high school student in Newfoundland and Labrador who is entering post-secondary studies with the intention of pursuing a petroleum-related career. It recognizes excellence in both academics and extra-curricular areas.
