Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate hon­ours class of 2015

The Compass - - EDITORIAL - BY AN­DREW ROBIN­SON ed­i­tor@CBN­com­pass.ca

Year af­ter year, stu­dents come and go from Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate, with grad­u­ates mov­ing on to new chal­lenges.

But the school al­ways finds a way just be­fore Christ­mas to hon­our its new­est alumni. It did so last Wed­nes­day at its an­nual awards night event, where diplo­mas were handed out to all grad­u­ates able to at­tend. The ma­jor­ity of the 100plus mem­bers of the school’s class of 2015 were present wear­ing caps and gowns.

Among those who un­for­tu­nately couldn’t at­tend the event was the night’s big win­ner. Chantelle Slade earned the pres­ti­gious Gov­er­nor Gen­eral’s Medal for claim­ing top grades among Level III stu­dents for the 2014-15 school year. She also claimed the school’s aca­demic achieve­ment award and the Cameron Schol­ar­ship as the fe­male with the high­est marks in her class.

The male re­cip­i­ent of that award was Kaiden Clarke, who also earned the male Sen­tinel of the Year hon­our. He shared the male ath­lete of the year award with Joshua Rogers.

Asha White­way was busy last Wed­nes­day, as her name was called to the stage mul­ti­ple times. She took home the so­cial aware­ness and hu­man­i­ties award, the Burch Nash Me­mo­rial Award, and was named the fe­male Sen­tinel of the Year among Level III stu­dents.

Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate prin­ci­pal Carla Roberts told the grad­u­ates on hand to cease the op­por­tu­ni­ties that await them.

“Your com­mu­ni­ties are so very proud that you are among them,” she said.
