SASKATOON -- A Saskatoon Grade 12 student has been named as a recipient of one of Canada's largest scholarship awards.
Kylie Flynn, a French immersion student at Marion M. Graham Collegiate is one of just 36 students from across the country to be selected as a 2020 Loran Scholar.
The honour comes with a four-year undergraduate study award worth $100,000.
