Corpus Christi College is pleased to announce the newest Circle of Fellows Scholarship recipients: Anthony De Lazzari (St. Thomas More Collegiate) and Sawyer Drummond (Vancouver College).
Chosen from a competitive field of high school applicants, Anthony and Sawyer are the fourth class of “Junior Fellows” - dedicated, empathetic leaders who have the vision and desire to change the world for the better.
Junior Fellows are passionate and determined students. Through the Circle of Fellows Scholarship, they benefit not only from a 2-year scholarship inclusive of tuition and co-curricular support, but also from personalized mentorship; guaranteed opportunities for service, leadership, and internships; and participation in a dynamic network of scholars and respected industry leaders. Find out more about the Circle of Fellows.
Scholarship winners underwent a comprehensive evaluation process including written applications and panel interviews. Faculty, staff and alumni assessed applicants based on their academic achievements, character strengths, leadership experience, and service contributions.
Starting Fall 2021, Anthony and Sawyer will attend Corpus Christi College, joining second-year students Maria Therese Dela Rosa and Emma Fenty as Junior Fellows. Read about current and former Circle of Fellows recipients.
A talented musician and student athlete, Anthony is drawn to opportunities to develop as a person and as a leader and help others do the same. Anthony was the starting quarterback for his high school’s Junior Varsity and Varsity football teams, helping lead his team to an undefeated season and an Eastern Conference Championship in Grade 11. He was also a drummer in his high school’s jazz band and jazz choir, and a member of the Chamber Choir, which was recognized as the best U19 choir in British Columbia for two years straight. Before beginning his studies at Corpus Christi College, Anthony looks forward to completing a summer internship with the Peter Szeto Investment Group at BMO.
“My environment at St. Thomas More enabled me to use my time and talents to make a meaningful impact on those in my community. I look forward to being able to continue helping others through my service and leadership.”
Sawyer has a heart for service and is dedicated to uplifting others through his compassionate leadership. Sawyer has been described as a “cheerleader for those around him” and a “friend to all.” In high school, he served as a leader of spiritual retreats and was captain of JV Irish lacrosse and Irish football teams. Sawyer is especially passionate about his work in respite care, where he facilitates activities that provide individuals with special needs the opportunity to develop important social skills, as well as a strong sense of self-confidence and true friendship.
“I am so grateful to be a Circle of Fellows recipient. I look forward to preparing for my future while being part of a great community based on and encouraged by our Catholic faith.”
