Glen Darough, broker owner of RE/MAX RHC Realty, announced that L.V. Rogers student Christina Musa is one of the 16 students chosen from Western Canada to receive the RE/MAX 2012 Quest for Excellence bursary valued at $1,000.

The key qualities these students have demonstrated are leadership, motivation and communication skills.

“Over 900 entries were received this year,” says Marie Sheppy, senior coordinator, corporate affairs, RE/MAX of Western Canada. “These astounding young adults have donated their personal time to volunteer in charitable fundraising or events.
