Alberta High School Student Wins National Scholarship for Essay

    National Credit Education Week Announces Winners

    CALGARY, Nov. 29 /CNW/ - Credit Counselling Services of Alberta (CCSA) is
proud to announce local Alberta high school girl as one of the winners of the
Credit Education Week Canada Scholarship Award for her essay. Hannah Ryan, a
grade 12 student from Airdrie, submitted her essay on how she will fund her
own post-secondary education. She plans to apply for as many scholarships as
possible while pursuing her degree in Communications. "Hannah's essay is
excellent, she thoroughly planned out what steps she will take to ensure that
she has money for University, as well as not to accumulate major student loan
debts," says Jim Thorne, Executive Director of CCSA. "It is not often you hear
from a high school student who thinks ahead, for her future," adds Thorne. 
Ryan's method is simple but effective; she plans to "set up a (savings) bank
account that will automatically deposit $200 from (her) regular account into
this savings account. This ensures that (she) will always be putting money
away on a regular basis."
    Hannah Ryan is a great role model for other students and she will be
presented with her cheque for $1000 on December 4th at 10 AM at the CCSA
Calgary office. No. 225, 602 - 11th Ave SW.

    Photo and interview opportunities will be made available.
