Bac­calieu Col­le­giate in Old Per­li­can rec­og­nized some of its best and bright­est last week dur­ing its an­nual awards night.

On Oct. 18, the school gave out nearly $9,000 to stu­dents from Grade 7 to Level III. The school wel­comes stu­dents from Win­ter­ton, Trin­ity Bay, to Ochre Pit Cove, on the north shore of Con­cep­tion Bay.

Old Per­li­can’s Re­becca Tiz­zard was the big win­ner. She was awarded the pres­ti­gious Gov­er­nor Gen­eral’s Award as the top stu­dent in Level III, along with a score of other awards. She also re­ceived an elec­toral schol­ar­ship from the Bay de Verde dis­trict val­ued at $1,000.

“It was a com­plete sur­prise,” she told The Com­pass last week. “I was re­ally ex­cited and re­ally proud.”

In all, Re­becca took home a bas­ket full of awards, to­tal­ing some $2,500.

She is the daugh­ter of Wendy and Roger Tiz­zard.

Re­becca de­scribed her time at Bac­calieu as “in­cred­i­ble.”

Re­becca is in her first year of nurs­ing stud­ies at Me­mo­rial Univer­sity. Once she has ob­tained a de­gree in nurs­ing, Re­becca plans on ap­ply­ing to med­i­cal school.
