Mission’s Preet Mangat is heading to Lakehead University in Ontario to begin his SHAD journey which starts by being fully immersed in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based learning environment for the month of July.
Mangat and other exceptional students accepted into SHAD are not your usual run-of-the-mill high academic achievers.
“SHAD empowers exceptional youth to make the world a better place,” said Barry Bisson, SHAD president.
“SHAD is where Canada’s top youth achievers are exposed to great ideas, inspired to look at things differently, challenged to reach for the highest levels of excellence and encouraged to embrace their uncommon purpose – the pursuit of their own potential to change the world.”
Mangat is among only 658 youth offered a place to spend this July immersed in the rewards and rigors of higher learning at one of SHAD’s 12 host universities from coast to coast.
SHAD is a registered Canadian charity that allows exceptional high school students to recognize their own capabilities and envision their potential.
Each year, SHAD provides the opportunity for more than 600 students from across Canada and internationally to attend a month-long summer learning program.
