Holy Trinity Student Wins Chernoff Family Award
The CDSBEO would like to congratulate Estelle Ngwa, a grade 12 student at Holy Trinity Secondary School in Cornwall, who has been awarded the Queen’s University Chernoff Family Award for 2023. The recipient is selected based on academic ability, creative and original thinking, and proven leadership qualities. Estelle will receive $48,000 towards her post secondary education at the prestigious Kingston university.
The awards recognize and are in memory of Nick and Maud Chernoff, who homesteaded on the Saskatchewan prairie and although acquiring very little education themselves, recognized the importance and value of a higher education and dedicated their lives to seeing their children through Canadian universities.
Estelle will study Medical Sciences in the fall, and aspires to become a medical doctor.
