Recent R.D. Parker Collegiate graduate Rishwan Dherdi formally received this year’s R.W.F. Hunt Scholarship during the Aug. 7 Thompson Chamber of Commerce meeting.
After accepting this award worth $1,000 from Chamber president Rajinder Thethy, Dherdi told the rest of the meeting attendees that she plans on taking business administration at both the University College of the North and the University of Winnipeg in the coming years.
The Thompson Chamber of Commerce first established the R.W.F. Hunt Scholarship back in 2002. It is named after the organization’s very first president.
