Nelson’s Sebastian Bodine is one of four winners of the 2018 Troop 17 Scholarship the RCMP said in a media release earlier this month.
The Scholarships are awarded to full-time college or university students who've made significant efforts to prevent bullying or harassment in their schools and communities.
“I'm grateful to have received the 2018 Troop 17 Scholarship,” said Bodine, a graduate of L.V. Rogers High School in Nelson.
“I was a Sea Cadet for seven years, two of them spent as a staff cadet and sail coach at HMCS Quadra in Comox, BC. I was considering a career in the military, but I changed my mind during my final year of high school after I completed the RCMP's Youth Academy training program.”
Bodine, now studying law at Selkirk College in Nelson, is considering a career in law enforcement.
“The Troop 17 scholarship helped me with my text book and vehicle expenses," Bodine said.
