Scholarship winner encourages St. Mary’s students

submitted to EFP

Students at St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School with French Immersion listened in on a special presentation from 18-year-old Nicholas Harris, a recent graduate from FJ Brennan High School, on the morning of Tuesday, December 18.  

  Harris earned a $100,000 Loran Scholarship. He is currently attending University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

  During his presentation, Harris spoke about the “Pursuit of Happiness” and the importance of loving yourself and being thankful to God for the life and experiences that you have been given. 

  Prior to speaking to the students at St. Mary’s, he created “The Amplify Project,” where he asked those attending the presentation to bring an item/items to donate to the local food bank. 

  Harris is the perfect example of gratitude and love! He had an amazing message for the staff and students of the school!

  As a way to give back to the WECDSB, Harris made similar presentations at St. Mary’s and Christ the King.
