Manitoulin Secondary School gives grads more than $50,000 in awards

MANITOULIN – Public health restrictions prevented Manitoulin Secondary School (MSS) from holding an in-person instalment of its annual awards night but school staff pivoted to ensure the many deserving students received recognition for their hard work during their time at the high school.

“The Manitoulin Student Aid Fund committee wishes to thank all of the individuals, groups and organizations who generously contribute to finance the scholarships, bursaries and awards which are being presented here,” stated an introduction to the program listing the award recipients. “The students and graduates of Manitoulin Secondary School greatly appreciate your recognition and assistance.”

This was the 51st year of honouring the school’s graduates and a few current students; MSS distributed more than $50,000 to students through this year’s awards.

“Their contributions have left a unique mark on our school. It is our sincere hope that we have been able to prepare our graduates with the skills necessary to be successful in their chosen area of interest,” stated MSS principal Jamie Mohamed in his opening message.

He said the school staff were confident that the graduates would continue to be exemplary citizens and that their time at MSS had helped them move closer to their goals.

He thanked parents and the Island community for their contributions toward the students’ post-secondary educations and credited the awards committee for their work to distribute the awards appropriately and fairly.
