Harding Road And Kenmount Road Campus “Convocation 2017”
On May 18, 2017, 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 218 graduating students.
Ms. Anita Morgan, Kenmount Road Campus Principal, and Mr. Steve Browne, Harding Road Campus Principal, began with opening remarks and introduced several speakers including Mr. Bernard Davis, Virginia Waters-Pleasantville MHA, Mr. James Loder, Head Office Representative, Mr. Russell Butler, graduate guest speaker from the Construction/Industrial Electrician program and Ms. Jennifer Kennedy-Fleming, School Valedictorian.
Thank you for your inspiring and motivating words.
Jennifer Kennedy Fleming, Convocation 2017, Valedictorian.
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.
