REDVERS - Jasmine George is a family and community-minded young woman who is the daughter of Chad and Cindy George.

She was raised on an acreage south of Bellegarde, with her older brother Sam and younger sister Sarah. Jasmine George has lived in the area her entire life and attends the Redvers School.

Jasmine is very active in her community and is a lifelong member of Redvers Artemis Dance Club. As a youth member, Jasmine joined the Redvers Lions Club a year ago.

In January 2023, Jasmine became the first junior councillor for the Town of Redvers.

She invests a lot of her time into the Redvers School's Leadership Club that she joined in Grade 9, and since Grade 11, she has written the monthly virtual newsletter for the school.

Jasmine also contributes to the school’s intramural program, while working a part-time job at the Redvers Pharmasave.

With plans to attend university, Jasmine applied for the Chancellor’s Scholarship offered by the University of Saskatchewan (USask). It is one of the university's Best and Brightest Entrance Scholarships. The application had multiple short and long-answer questions.

It took her several weeks to fill out, as she wanted to ensure that her responses were thoroughly developed, detailed and not rushed.

This scholarship is valued at $30,000 and is distributed over four years at $7,500 annually.

In order to continue to receive the scholarship, she must meet requirements as a student, such as maintaining an 80 per cent average.

Students applying for the initial scholarship must have exceptional community involvement and grades.

In March Jasmine was thrilled to learn she was the recipient of this prestigious scholarship.

She plans to enter the USask College of Arts and Science, and hopes to major in science, but she is not entirely certain which specific program she will pursue. The university offers a wide range of science programs that she is eager to explore.

It is her hope to eventually obtain a bachelor of science degree, which will take her four years to obtain, and later she may use this degree as a stepping stone to pursue graduate studies.
