Honored in Canada

Turan Ragimov, 19, recently won Canada's prestigious Governor General's Academic Award for graduating with the highest grade-point average at his high school in Toronto. Only five students from the top schools in the city received this award. Turan averaged 97 percent in his courses at Northview Heights Secondary School, even though he had just moved to Canada in March 1998. Turan will be studying Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, and was offered scholarships at two other major Canadian schools.

This young scholar was also selected as a winner of an "Aiming for the Top" Tuition Scholarship, a $3,500 award bestowed by The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities of Ontario. The scholarship recognizes students who graduate from high school with an outstanding grade point average and enroll in one of the top universities in Canada.
