Every year SMECA chooses nominees, from our grade 11 students, for the Lieutenant Governor's Award. These students are chosen based on academic performance, qualities of leadership, and service demonstrated in their school and community. This year, there are two recipients of this award.
Caleb-devan is a very active hockey player who has received many accolades through the years for his athletic skills and his leadership both on and off the ice. He shares his love of the game by coaching younger players through recreation programs and he enjoys seeing them learn a new skill and grow each week. He is a member of 4-H and won Top Senior (non-livestock) for Guysborough County last year. Caleb-devan volunteers at the Highcrest Nursing Home in Sherbrooke and with the STFX sledge hockey program. Academically, Caleb-devan has been recognized with the Outstanding Student Award and he is consistently on the Honour Roll. His future plans include pursuing a career in sports medicine.
Connor Veinotte is a young man with a very strong work ethic who has been on the Principal’s List with Excellence consistently since grade 9. Connor has also been recognized with the Outstanding Student Award for the past 3 years and in his grade 10 year, he received the Kadray Trophy which is given to the male student with the highest academic standing in senior high. Connor volunteers with the Ecum Secum Church Association and assists with community events. He also helps the seniors in his area and understands the importance of connection between generations. Connor currently works with St. Mary’s Recreation and enjoys his time working with the public in the Fitness Centre. Connor is still considering his future plans and SMECA wishes him the best of luck!
Congratulations Caleb-Devan and Connor! SMECA is proud of you !!
