Lassen took home two Language Arts/ Social Awards, a Math/ Science Award, an Academic Excellence Award, and the William P. Doucette Memorial Award, which is given to the student who received the highest academic achievement in Social Studies and Language Arts throughout grades seven to nine.

"Well, it is super great. Especially at the beginning of the year when you are just getting back to school and you are stressed and trying to keep on top of things and working hard, to be recognized for last year's achievements helps keep you going," explained Lassen.

Among the many award recipients was grade twelve student Donovan Snider who not only succeeded in his academic career but in leadership as well, taking home the Willam Doyle Leadership Award.

"That is a tremendous honor. I was blessed to be presented with this award last year as well. This year commemorates work I did on student council, that was quite a ride. I had lots of support from friends and other classmates, and I am really honored to be recognized in this way," said Snider.

Snider also took home a Math/Science Award, a Language Arts/ Social Award, and an Academic Excellence Award, and is excited to see what this year will bring for student council.

"Last year the kind of a culmination of our efforts on student council was a talent show. We had people come in and showcase their talents. It was a big deal to run it as a student body but the audience had a really good time and it was really fulfilling at the end of the day," continued Snider.
