Congratulations to Blyth Academy Whitby student Victoria Lacey for winning the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award!
The Terry Fox Humanitarian Award winners are chosen “in recognition of having demonstrated the highest ideals and qualities of citizenship and humanitarian service while in pursuit of excellence in academic, amateur sport, fitness, health, and voluntary community service. In so doing has reflected those ideals of courage, humanitarianism, service and compassion, which Terry Fox embodied.” – Terry Fox Awards.
Victoria joined Blyth Academy in Grade 10 and was our Whitby school’s Valedictorian at graduation last week. Victoria was instrumental in prom planning at her campus and designed the prom poster used school-wide. As Blyth Whitby Guidance Counsellor Kelly Jamieson-Drachenberg said in her Valedictorian introduction speech, “Tori is the type of student that teachers dream of teaching. She has the ability to fully immerse herself in the subject matter. I have been constantly in awe of her creativity, talent and awareness. She quietly commands respect from her peers and admiration from her teachers.”
We are blessed to have had such an incredible student at Blyth Academy, and we wish Victoria all the best in her post-secondary education.
