WINNIPEG, Man. — Reimer Express Lines has awarded Karly Neveu the Dr. Donald S. Reimer Scholarship. Neveu, the sixth recipient of a Reimer Express scholarship, earned the scholarship on the basis of academic achievement along with her involvement in extra-curricular activities.

Neveu will be graduating with honours from the French Immersion Program at her high school, Earl Marriott Secondary, in Surrey, B.C. She has represented the province at national sports competitions and is actively involved in ringette, basketball and track and field. In addition to being a nationally-ranked high jumper, Nevau was recently named Female Athlete of the Year at her school. She has also been a peer tutor, worked with physically and mentally challenged students and coached high jump at an elementary school.

Karlys teachers have found her to be an excellent student, a gifted athlete and a supportive and giving friend, according to a release from Reimer. While maintaining high marks she has given back to the community by volunteering for the Breast Cancer Walk for a Cure, the Cancer Research 24-hour Relay for Life and the 30 Hour Famine to raise money for third world countries.

The scholarship has a value of $5,000 annually for a maximum of four consecutive years to a total of $20,000. The scholarship is open to dependants of Reimer employees.

Neveu plans to attend Boston University and obtain her Masters in Business. Her father, Dan, is a 20-year employee of Reimer, currently working as the director of field sales for Western Canada.
