President’s Award

The President’s Award is Academy Canada’s highest honour awarded to one student from each graduating year who reflects the ideals we strive to instill in our graduates including leadership, professionalism, positive attitude, good overall average and a willingness to participate in school activities.

Staff members provide recommendations to Academy Canada’s president, Mr. Mike Barrett, who selects a recipient. A difficult decision to make as several students were deserving of this award.

Ms. Anita Morgan presented these awards to:

Harding Road – 2024 – Cassidy Ryan – Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist Student

Kenmount Road – 2024 – Olivia Lawson – Office Administration General
