Two Coquitlam students are among five SFU undergraduates in the Beedie School of Business to receive the inaugural Ryan Beedie Leadership Awards. The new scholarships, worth $20,000 each over four years, will be given to Kirsten Milic, a Dr. Charles Best secondary grad, and Musa Fortin, a Inquiry Hub secondary grad, to recognize their leadership while at high school. “Since making the gift to establish the Beedie School of Business in 2011 I have had the opportunity to get to know so many bright, ambitious students over the years,” Ryan Beedie said in a news release. “I am always so impressed with their accomplishments, and I want to do as much as I can to help more young people have the chance to get a university education and build a bright future. These new awards are designed to recognize leadership potential in students and will hopefully inspire youth to get involved in their communities.”
