Vassa Reentova of the University of Calgary is one of six outstanding Canadian engineering students awarded last month by the Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation. With its annual awards, the CEMF honours the memory of the 14 women slain Dec. 6, 1989, at the École Polytechnique.

Ms. Reentova received a $5,000 undergraduate scholarship, during a special luncheon in Charlottetown, P.E.I., during the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
Also receiving a $5,000 undergraduate scholarship were Bernice Chan of Mississauga, Ont., University of Waterloo; Stacy MacDonald of Lake Echo, N.S., Unversity College of Cape Breton; Jessa Tang of Thunder Bay, Ont., Simon Fraser University; and Véronic Tétreault of Boucherville, Que., École Polytechnique.
“ Each of these young women has strong leadership abilities and gives her free time to varied extracurricular and volunteer activities,” says a CEMF news release. “The foundation believes they are the future leaders in engineering.”

Monica Danon-Schaeffer of West Vancouver, B.C., received the $15,000 Claudette MacKay-Lassonde Graduate Scholarship Award. She’s completing her PhD in chemical and biological engineering at the University of British Columbia.

“ As in past years, the 2004 recipients are all remarkable people, who have long lists of accomplishments and abilities,” said CEMF President Suzelle Barrington. “The foundation is proud to present each of them with these well-deserved scholarships.”
