Anne White of Toronto has been awarded a 2012 Fessenden-Trott Scholarship, valued at $9000 a year for three years. This scholarship is awarded to students going into their second year of university who have an excellent academic record and who demonstrate leadership qualities.
It was one of Anne’s high school teachers—a former Foundation Year Programme student—who recommended King’s to Anne. She took the Foundation Year Programme last year and is now considering pursuing a degree in theatre studies. Before she arrived at King’s, Anne was involved with her high school student council and various social justice issues. On campus, she is part of the King’s Pride Society and the Feminist Collective. She is also active in theatre as co-ordinator of the King’s Infringement Festival and stage manager of Lysistrata this year. Last year she wrote and directed her own play.
Anne came to King’s because she wanted “to be equipped to think about the world. I wanted to be challenged and to have that rigorous academic discipline. And the reading list was so cool.”
