Home » Wall of Fame » Kenmount Road And Harding Road Campus “Convocation 2016”

On May 19, 2016, Kenmount and Harding Road campuses students and staff attended Academy Canada’s Annual Convocation Ceremony at the Arts and Culture Centre in St. John’s. The auditorium was full with family, friends, guests, and 232 graduating students.

Ms. Anita Fisher, Kenmount Road Campus Principal, and Mr. Steve Browne, Harding Road Campus Principal, began with opening remarks and introduced several speakers including Ms. Jackie White, Head Office Representative and Ms. Crystal Crews, graduate guest speaker from the Office Administration Technology Program.

Thank you for your inspiring and motivating words.

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. Simon Lovelady, Harding Road Campus Construction/Industrial Electrician Student, and Ms. Anita Fisher presented the award to Ms. Terralyn Dove, Kenmount Road Campus Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist Student.

Congratulations to both recipients.
