A special presentation was made to Estevan resident Ynjhua Liu yesterday.

She was presented with the Canada Post Literacy Award which honours individuals who overcome great social or financial barriers to gain and continue in the pursuit of literacy.

Liu was presented with a certificate of accomplishment and three hundred dollars.

Only 22 people across Canada were presented with the Literacy Award for Individual Achievement. Liu moved to Estevan with her husband where she knew very little English. After studying English as a second language, she now studies Business Administration.
