More than 4,700 students from Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville attended Grade 12 in the Halton District School Board this year. Of all these students, many graduates are preparing to embark on a new journey at university or college in the fall.
To celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates, we’ve profiled a few of the many students from across our Board who are receiving scholarships and awards for post-secondary education this year.
“My schooling at M.M. Robinson gave me many opportunities to lead, to listen to and be surrounded by people who have different interests, goals, backgrounds and skills from my own,” says Zion. “I learned how to collaborate and empathize with people, and how to adapt in unpredictable situations - all of these skills will be invaluable during my post-secondary education and throughout life.”
M.M. Robinson HS football coach Marco Ferrone nominated Zion for the Jeff Dickins Memorial Award which celebrates sports potential, high academic standards and community involvement in students.
The Robert D. Gould Scholarship is available to M.M. Robinson HS students. “I knew it was something I would definitely be applying for because I believed I fit the criteria,” says Zion. “My guidance counsellors made the process even more straightforward.”
Zion plans to study computer science at Queen’s University.
We wish all our graduates success as they begin the next chapter of their lives.
