According to a release from CEPEO, this prestigious university scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate determination, commitment and leadership.
Through her academic path at the CEPEO and her involvement in various school initiatives, Alexane Houle stood out from 5,174 applicants from across the country, the school board stated.
“We believe that integrity, courage, grit and personal autonomy are better indicators of overall potential than standard academic measures. To discover these traits, we administer the most comprehensive and thorough scholarship selection process in Canada,” stated the Loran Scholars Foundation.
The school board said that Houle is an invested student who currently serves on the School Council as the First Minister of Student Government at Mille-Îles Public High School. According to the release, she also holds the responsibilities of senator in the CEPEO Student Senate. She has reportedly distinguished herself in other projects as well, such as the Podcasts on One City, Two Realities (Une ville, deux réalités), produced by the Association Canadienne-française (ACFO) Mille-Îles.
“Alexane’s determination, perseverance and path are inspiring for the CEPEO school community and for young Francophones across the country. She is a fine example of excellence,” said Director of Education Sylvie C.R. Tremblay
According to the release, CEPEO and Mille-Îles are proud of her success and are even more pleased to offer her and all learners a unique and caring learning environment where deep and lasting learning is a daily priority.
