This evening, City Council recognized Emily Moyer and Michael (Seung Ho) Lee as the 2016 recipients of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship. This $2,000 scholarship, awarded annually, recognizes two high school students with the highest scholastic achievement based on the average of the student’s best six subjects in their graduating year.
“We are so proud of these two young Londoners. It is an honour to be able to recognize Emily and Michael for all their hard work,” said Mayor Matt Brown. “We are so pleased both have chosen to attend Western University in the fall. I look forward to their continued success.”
Emily graduated with an average of 99.67% from London South Collegiate Institute and will be attending Western University this fall. With a love for history and English, Emily hopes to pursue a career as an author or a historian upon completing her degree.
Michael graduated with an average of 98.67% from London Central Secondary School and is attending Western University in the fall studying Medical Science in concurrence with the Ivey Advanced Entry Opportunity program. Michael’s goal is to earn his M.D. and practice medicine to influence the lives of many.
Sponsored by the Corporation of the City of London, the Queen Elizabeth Scholarships were established in 1981 to recognize academic excellence among graduating London high school students pursuing post-secondary education.
