Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride that I recognize several outstanding young people in my constituency of Erie-Lincoln.
Millennium scholarships were awarded to four local high school students who excelled in their studies and show great potential for our Canadian community.
I ask all members to please join me in congratulating Elissa Smith and Emily Wilson, both of Port Colborne High School; and Rebecca Bogar and Adam Sherk, both of Ridgeway Crystal Beach High School, for outstanding academic achievement and excellence.
Ashley Browne, from Ridgeway Crystal Beach High School, also deserves special recognition for being selected to participate in a trade mission to Mexico with junior team Canada. Ashley will be the first young person from Niagara to join a junior team Canada delegation, and she plans to promote the growing Niagara wine industry during her trip.
I congratulate these young people, their families, friends and schools. I wish them all good luck. They make us very proud.
