Congratulations to our graduates

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2014!


I was honoured to attend many convocation ceremonies in my riding and to award 11 scholarships to students who demonstrated outstanding leadership in volunteerism and two scholarships to students who excelled in Aboriginal Studies.


Every year I am proud of the many talented, intelligent, and inspiring young adults graduating from the Louis Riel School Division, the Division Scolaire Franco-Manitobaine, the Archdiocese of Winnipeg Catholic Schools, and Springs Christian Academy. I wish each of them the best of luck and hope that the next chapter in their lives brings them new passion, inspiration and happiness.


The St. Vital Adult Education Centre also has a graduating class of adult learners who deserve special recognition. Going back to school as an adult learner comes with its own challenges. As someone who has experienced it first-hand, I know how tough it is to raise a family and pay the bills while pursuing an education. I want to say a big "Congratulations!" to all of these students. Keep up the good work.


I also want to commend the many teachers, support workers and administrators who have helped make a difference in these students’ lives. Our community is home to some of the best teachers in the world and I can’t thank you enough. Have a safe and happy summer holiday—you deserve it for a job well done.


I was proud to visit Holy Cross School last week and announce that nine schools in my riding received 81 computers and printers thanks to an investment by the Government of Canada and the Computers for Schools program. This unique program repairs and refurbishes used computers and donates them to schools.
