SJR Excellence Scholarship Recipient Meets Canadian Ambassador


Pham Quynh Anh & Ambassador Chatsis at the Canadian Embassy in Hanoi.

On a recent sunny afternoon in Hanoi, Pham Quynh Anh, who was awarded the SJR Excellence Scholarship, the most generous scholarship ever awarded to a Vietnamese student, had the opportunity to meet with Deborah Chatsis, the Canadian Ambassador to Vietnam.  It was a chance for Ambassador Chatsis to congratulate Quynh Anh on this extraordinary achievement and to wish her well as she embarks upon a life-changing adventure.  At the end of the summer, she will travel across 12 time zones to begin her studies and life at  St. John’s-Ravenscourt School in Winnipeg (Manitoba), one of Canada’s leading independent schools. 

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts and in this recent press release, the SJR Excellence Scholarship, funded by a SJR alumnus who has been successful doing business in Vietnam, enables Quynh Anh to complete the 12th grade at SJR and attend any university in the world, all expenses paid. 

I’m grateful to Ambassador Chatsis for taking time out of her busy schedule to meet with us and chat with Quynh Anh.
