Diocese of Hamilton Student Awards:
Nora Dempsey is the recipient of the Diocese of Hamilton Award for St. James Catholic Secondary School in Guelph.
Nora and her family have attended Holy Rosary Church in Guelph for many years. We could say that Nora has grown up in the Parish! Despite being shy, she stretches herself by serving as a Lector. She is following in the footsteps of her mother and older sister in this regard. Nora is a talented writer and plans to hone her skills in the English Department at Queens University. Her great sense of humour will come in handy as she makes her way in a new city, a new school and a more focussed study area. Nora will be greatly missed by the St. James School community!
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.
