President’s Award

The President’s Award is Academy Canada’s highest honour awarded to one student from each campus reflecting the ideals we strive to instil in our graduates including leadership, professionalism, positive attitude, good overall average, and a willingness to participate in school and extra-curricular activities.

Staff members provide recommendations to Academy Canada President, Mr. Mike Barrett, who selects a recipient. A difficult decision to make as several students deserved this award.

Mr. Steve Browne presented this award to Mr. Daniel Hickey, Harding Road Campus Construction/Industrial Electrician Student, and Ms. Anita Morgan presented the award to Kenmount Road Campus Therapeutic Recreation Student, Shaelyn Philips.

Congratulations to both recipients.
