High school grads to receive scholarships from local pharmacy

High schools in Lethbridge are set to distribute scholarships for students who are graduating this year. These include Chinook High School, LCI, Lethbridge School District 51, Winston Churchill High School, and Victoria Park High School. The scholarships come from the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy in Lethbridge. $5,000 in total will be awarded to two students per school. This equals $625 per student. The money will go towards helping students who will be attending university in the fall.

Best leadership skill and best grade are the two categories that are being chosen for the scholarships for students from the high schools in our city.

Vishal Sukhadiya is the owner of The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy in Lethbridge, and he says that the pharmacy wanted to help those students that otherwise cannot to go to college or the university, “We set a criteria for the students with a family income of less than $80,000. They would be able to enter into this scholarship program.”

Sukhadiya adds that his pharmacy has been running steady during the pandemic, “Our business hasn’t been slowing down. It’s just been going on. Even with the vaccination, we are getting busier.”

Students can apply directly with the schools if they are interested.
