ÉSC Champlain graduate one of three national scholarship honorees

Sébastien Whissell, a graduate from École secondaire catholique Champlain in Chelmsford is one of three Canadian students to receive the Paul-Charbonneau Scholarship during the annual convention of the Fédération nationale des conseils scolaires francophones.

Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon education director Paul Henry says valued at $1,000, this scholarship is presented to a high school graduate from each of the three regions of Canada. 

He says the scholarship, awarded for the first time to a local graduate, aims to encourage the pursuit of post-secondary studies in French in a minority setting in Canada, while rewarding academic success, leadership skills and community involvement.

Henry adds Whissell is also the recipient of the Governor General’s Academic Medal and the recipient of the Lieutenant Governor Award for Volunteerism in recognition of the more than 1,000 hours of community service accumulated as a secondary school student.
