We at The White Hatter want to congratulate Kevin Li, the winner of the 2018 White Hatter Scholarship! Kevin is a Grade 12 student at Fraser Heights Secondary School in Surrey, BC. He is enrolled in their Science Academy. This is a program where students are accelerated in their senior math and science courses so that they may take Advanced Placement Calculus and University Computer Science courses at Simon Fraser University - all in their Grade 12 year. Kevin has not only committed to this program, but he has also done exceptionally well. He achieved first class marks in Pre-Calculus 12, Chemistry 12, and Physics 12 and he is currently doing amazing work in AP Calculus BC, and Computer Science at SFU. Furthermore, Kevin is in charge of the Fraser Heights Information Technology club in which he helps maintain the technology at his school, including the creation and maintenance of the Fraser Heights Science Academy website.
Kevin’s required scholarship application package, especially his essay on the security challenges surrounding the Internet of Things, was absolutely spectacular and it really stood out to The White Hatter Team as a whole. It is for this reason that we are awarding Kevin with the 2018 White Hatter Scholarship. Our hope is that this scholarship will assist Kevin with some of the financial costs associated with attending the University of Waterloo, where he has been accepted into the Software Engineering Honors undergraduate program. Students like Kevin prove that we in good hands when it comes to the future of digital safety and security in our country.
Once again, the White Hatter Team would like to congratulate Kevin on winning this scholarship. And as a company, we are proud and honored to support Canadian teens who are looking to further their education in the area of digital safety and security.
