Honouring Student Excellence
Deserving students from our Division were honoured for two separate awards on June 17 at the LRSD Honouring Student Excellence Awards.
The Honouring Spirit: Indigenous Studend Awards recognize First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students who "model strength and commitment in the pursuit of their personal education paths and embrace their own gifts, strengths, and potential while celebrating the ways of their people." Students are nominated by their teachers and administrators and selected by the Alberta School Boards Association committee. This year, Carson Smith and Harlee Grier received honourable mentions for the Honouring Spirit awards.
Student leadership in LRSD is recognized through the Dr. Lloyd Cavers Student Leadership Award Scholarship. Graduating Grade 12 students are nominated by their school and selected by a committee of Trustees and central office Administrator. The nominees for the 2018-2019 school year - all of whom were celebrated at the event - were Madison Dozeman, Chelsie Harris, Hayley Fast, Ali Hemmaway, Ewen Erickson, and overall winner Adeline Halibert.
We congratulate the Honouring Spirit and Dr. Lloyd Cavers nominees and winners! Congratulations and best of luck as you continue to demonstrate leadership and commitment to personal growth and education.
