Through her involvement in Social Justice, she has participated in, and organized events such as “Into the Cold”, which has raised awareness on the issue of homelessness.
Kate’s participation in our school’s Relay for Life committee and the Canadian Cancer Society speaks volumes to her sharing her own experience as a Cancer Survivor. Kate has also been involved with the Relay for Life at universities such as St. Jerome’s University in Waterloo. Kate’s future goals are paired with her genuine love for others. In 10 years, she hopes to be finishing her PhD in Child Psychology and she hopes to work in a school board with students who battle mental health.
The Diocese of Hamilton Award is given to a student in the graduating class in every high school across the Diocese at the end of every school year. The Award recognizes a student in the graduating class who has attained high academic proficiency and exemplifies Catholic leadership qualities, Christian values and a commitment to service in the community.
