Sarah Lewis, Pearson College
I am delighted today to congratulate Sarah Lewis, a Grade 11 Student at St. Bonaventure’s College, who was recently awarded the Lester B. Pearson scholarship to attend the prestigious Pearson College in Victoria, BC.
Sarah was chosen for the award due to her excellence in a broad range of academic and extra-curricular, community involvement, and athletic achievements. Sarah is a President’s Honours student at St. Bon’s and holds a 92 per cent average. Sarah is also the president of the St. Bon’s Social Justice Club and competes provincially in debating.
Sarah is an avid runner and won the provincial gold for cross running in 2017. She also plays competitive soccer and was the youngest member of the 2017 Women’s Canada Games soccer team.
The Pearson College’s United World College is a part of 17 schools worldwide that create a global framework for learning. The Lester B. Pearson scholarship will allow Sarah to attend the school for two years of pre-university study in the International Baccalaureate Program at Pearson.
I ask all honourable members to join me in congratulating Sarah Lewis on her academic achievements.
