WINNIPEG, Man. — Reimer Express Lines has awarded the 2008 Reimer Express Scholarship to Monica Cella of Westbank, B.C.

The Reimer Express scholarship has a value of $5,000 annually for a maximum of four consecutive years, up to a total of $20,000.

The scholarship is open to dependants of Reimer Express employees. Monica is the daughter of Claudio Cella, who is in his 25th year with Reimer Express and currently serves as the sales and operations supervisor at the Kelowna service centre.

Monica is the seventh recipient of the award and earned the scholarship through academic achievement, community involvement, and participation in many extracurricular activities, Reimer announced. Monica will attend the University of British Columbia in Kelowna this fall, seeking a bachelor of science degree. She intends to pursue studies in ecology and microbiology and hopes to one day earn her master’s and doctorate degrees in these fields.
