William Raymond
2016 Entrance Scholarship
Second Year Student at University of Guelph, specializing in Environmental Engineering

What was your reaction when you received the Foundation for Education’s scholarship?
“Receiving the scholarship was a great relief. It was also a really nice form of recognition because I’m always trying really hard in school but most of the time it’s just shown in a number on a report card. With the scholarship, it is showed that my hard work was being noticed.”

Can you give one piece of advice to a student just starting university?
Sleep, sleep, sleep! There were a lot of nights in first year when I crashed because I was pushing myself too hard with a busy schedule. Sometimes you have to bump a task or two to the next day and you’ll be much more productive to complete it.
