Student needs study help

​With final exams right around the corner, students are getting ready to hit the books hard, but one student needs a little help.

Sean Johnston is visiting his parents in Kelowna and the Thompson Rivers University student woke up to an unpleasant surprise Saturday morning.

His car window had been smashed and a number of things stolen including a box with all his course work and text books.

Johnston says the thieves can keep his mountain biking helmet and camel backpack, but he is desperate to get his study material back before he heads home to Nakusp.

"I’m taking online courses with Thompson Rivers, so it has my course packages and my textbooks that have all my highlighting in them. I’ve got finals coming up in 2 weeks and I was hoping to study for those, and I don’t know if I can actually get texts again in that time frame so it just throws me for a loop in my schooling."

Johnston's car was parked on Ethel St., behind St. Joseph Elementary, and he is hoping that whoever took the box might have discarded it once they realized what was inside.

"It’s a brown box that just says Thompson Rivers University on it and it was dark I guess and they just grabbed what they could find and I assume if they see books they’re not going to be excited because they can't sell them."

If anyone finds the box that would include text books and course work for Introduction to Psychology and 18th and 19th Century Literature let us know at [email protected]
