Cham­plain Len­noxville pre­sented sev­eral pres­ti­gious awards to stu­dents from through­out the Town­ships and beyond as well as cer­tifi­cates to more than 150 mem­bers of the class of 2012 at the Grad­u­a­tion and Awards Cer­e­mony on Fri­day evening. The two top awards, the Gov­er­nor Gen­eral’s Medal and Board of Gov­er­nors’ Award for high­est aca­demic achieve­ment, were pre­sented to Mad­hiha Taseen. A na­tive of Len­noxville, Ms. Taseen grad­u­ated from Alexander Galt Re­gional High School and com­pleted her col­lege diploma in So­cial Sci­ence and will pur­sue her stud­ies in Busi­ness at Bishop’s Univer­sity in the fall. She was also Vice-Pres­i­dent Aca­demic for the Cham­plain Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion. The Royal Bank Award was pre­sented to vale­dic­to­rian Pa­trick Wang, the grad­u­at­ing stu­dent with the sec­ond high­est av­er­age, by Len­noxville branch bank man­ager Louise Mathieu. Mr. Wang, who at­tended Alexander Galt, re­ceived his diploma in Health Sci­ence from the Col­lege and had served as the Pres­i­dent of the Cham­plain Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion dur­ing his fi­nal year of stud­ies. He was also awarded the Richard Beger Memo­rial Award in recog­ni­tion of both aca­demic ex­cel­lence and out­stand­ing in­volve­ment in ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties. The Cham­plain Stu­dent As­so­ci­a­tion Merit Award is peer-se­lected and an­nu­ally awarded to a stu­dent who has con­tributed sig­nif­i­cantly to the de­vel­op­ment of stu­dent life through ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties. This year›s win­ner was James Lamarre, who served as Vice-Pres­i­dent In­ter­nal of the Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion and has been heav­ily in­volved in a num­ber of or­ga­ni­za­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties since be­gin­ning stud­ies at the Col­lege. «We are very proud of all of our grad­u­ates and their ac­com­plish­ments both within and out­side of the class­room,» ex­plained Paul Kaeser, Direc­tor of Cham­plain-Len­noxville. «The grad­u­a­tion and awards cer­e­mony is an op­por­tu­nity to for­mally rec­og­nize and con­grat­u­late our stu­dents on their suc­cesses.» Ad­di­tion­ally, the fol­low­ing ma­jor awards were pre­sented to th­ese grad­u­at­ing stu­dents: Livia Si­mard, Sémi­naire Sale­sian, Christian Jaouich, Sémi­naire de
