This year’s recipient of the RWF Hunt Scholarship is Rishwan Dherdi.
Dherdi was presented the scholarship at today’s Thompson Chamber of Commerce meeting by chamber president Raj Thethy.
She plans to use the money to enroll in a Business Administration program, as she intends to spend the first year at UCN, and the remaining three years at the University of Winnipeg.
Dherdi says that in five years, she sees herself opening up her own business in Thompson, or pursuing a career as a charter accountant, which is an addition two years of school.
The RWF Hunt Scholarship was first established in 2002 by the city’s Chamber of Commerce for students majoring in a business-related program, and is named after the organization’s first president.
