GANDER, N.L. — Kal­lie Stone, a Grade 12 stu­dent at Clarenville High, was rec­og­nized on Fri­day, May 12 in Gander with a spe­cial award for stu­dent lead­er­ship out of all of New­found­land and Labrador from the Cana­dian As­so­ci­a­tion of Prin­ci­pals (CAP).

Nom­i­nated by Clarenville High School’s prin­ci­pal, Ian David­son, he says Kal­lie is a nat­u­ral choice for the award.

“She’s an ex­cep­tional per­son,” David­son told The Packet. “She’s pres­i­dent of our stu­dent coun­cil, she’s a tire­less worker around the school, she vol­un­teers and or­ga­nizes ev­ery­thing. She’s just a fab­u­lous per­son.”

He says the award val­i­dates all the work she’s put in as a stu­dent leader, and since there are so many ex­cel­lent young lead­ers in the prov­ince, it re­ally puts into per­spec­tive how great she is.

Kal­lie was cho­sen af­ter be­ing nom­i­nated by David­son and sub­mit­ting an ap­pli­ca­tion to CAP. She will re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate in ad­di­tion to a $500 schol­ar­ship.

She says she was hon­oured to have been rec­og­nized and thank­ful to David­son, Jan­ice Har­num, CAP and ev­ery­one in­volved.

But she was sur­prised when the award was an­nounced.

“I was so shocked that I had ac­tu­ally won and I was very hon­oured to re­ceive (the award),” Kal­lie told The Packet.

Kal­lie also says she will con­tinue to work hard at ev­ery­thing she does.

“Be­ing in­volved is some­thing I re­ally en­joy and will al­ways con­tinue to do.”

Jan­ice Har­num, prin­ci­pal of An­thony Pad­don El­e­men­tary in Mus­grave­town, in­tro­duced Kal­lie at the award pre­sen­ta­tion in Gander.

Kal­lie even got a chance to meet Premier Dwight Ball in St. John’s last week, along with Terra Nova MHA Colin Hol­loway.

She is plan­ning to study geo sciences in post sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion in the fall.
