TORONTO, May 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Local Nova Scotia student Zachary Julian is one of twenty high school recipients to be awarded a TD Scholarship for Community Leadership, valued at up to $70,000.  Students who have earned the scholarship have demonstrated innovation and passion for making a difference in their community.
