Candace Bernier Memorial Scholarship

This $500.00 scholarship is offered in the memory of Mrs. Candace Bernier, a long-time English Language Arts teacher at École St Mary High School and will be presented during the Grad 2019 program at the Art Hauser. Mrs. Bernier was passionate about teaching English. She recognised that attaining a high grade in an ELA class was noteworthy, but more importantly, to her, was using your English Language Arts skills in other areas of interest. Mock Trial, Model UN, Debate, Creative Writing, and Drama were some of the areas Mrs. Bernier deemed as challenges for strong language arts skills.

Applicant Criteria- Grade 12 graduates wishing to apply for the Candace Bernier Memorial Scholarship must possess the following attributes:

  • Respectable grade in ELA 30 – 80 percent average or better
  • Active in Mock Trial and/or Model UN, and/or Drama
  • Be considering a career in Education, Law, Politics, Writing, or Drama

The application deadline is Tuesday, May 14th at 3:30 p.m., as part of the Graduation Awards application package, and students are to add this award as 2.27 Candace Bernier Memorial Scholarship on the SMHS Grad 2019 Awards Application Cover Page and indicate with “X” that they are applying for it.
