Winners are selected from valid applications received. Remember to submit an application for your son or daughter who will be attending college or university next year. This year's winners are Mary Anne Schoenhardt and Sam Morency.

Mary Anne Schoenhardt

Daughter of OBEA Member, Bill Schoenhardt, York Region District School Board, Mary Anne will be attending McMaster University in the Integrated Science program. It is a small program where all three strands of science (biology, chemistry and physics) are integrated through project based learning. Mary Anne loves dance (particularly ballet) and danced competitively throughout high school. In addition to dance and school, Mary Anne also enjoys canoe tripping, attending camp and art. She was also very active in her high school community. Mary Anne skied with the Nordic Ski team (making it to OFSAA), ran cross country, played in the Senior Jazz band, and was a Mentor within the school. Mary Anne also played an active role in organizing and running the grade 9 orientation camp at her school in September.

Sam Morency

Son of OBEA member, Sally Morency, Ottawa Catholic District School Board, Sam is headed to Carleton University in the Fall to study Software Engineering. Sam hopes to combine this with his entrepreneurship experience to become a business leader in the high tech industry. As a student of Mother Teresa High School in Ottawa, Sam was an energetic force in Student Council, Leadership Camp, I Matter U Matter, Football Team, School Plays, and various assemblies. Sam was regularly chosen to represent the school at conferences, including We Day, Provincial Leadership Conference, Global Vision Regional Round table, and the Canada 150 kick-off ceremony’s Fire of Friendship Torch Relay. In his final year, Sam was chosen as Student Trustee for the Ottawa Catholic School Board to represent over 40,000 students. Most recently, Sam applied for and received the Ontario Summer Company Grant, purchased an ice cream bike, and successfully ran his own business, CHILL.
