On Nov. 15, Mikayla Chislett of Heart’s Delight was declared the winner of the 2017 Noia-Hibernia Scholarship. The Crescent Collegiate graduate received her $1,000 award at the Noia Fall Seminar.
Following her graduation from high school with a cumulative average of 95 per cent, Mikayla entered in Memorial University where she studies engineering with the goal of working in the offshore oil & gas industry as an engineer.
The Noia-Hibernia scholarship was established in 1997 — the year the Hibernia platform was completed and started drawing oil. It is designed to foster the bright minds that will shape the future of our province’s oil and gas industry.
The award is presented annually to a graduating high school student in Newfoundland and Labrador who is entering post-secondary studies with the intention of pursuing a petroleum-related career. It recognizes excellence in both academics and extra-curricular areas.
