President Agnew presents the 2013 Seneca Cup — the College's most prestigious student award — to Katelyn Forgione (above) and to Erin Grant (below).
Katelyn Forgione - The Bachelor of Child Development student started a Free the Children – Me to We chapter at the College. As the club’s president, she organized bake sales and penny drives at King Campus to raise enough money to build a school in Ecuador. In fact, Katelyn saw to it by travelling to Ecuador in April to help in the construction.
This year, Katelyn was also selected to attend the Education Without Borders Conference in the United Arab Emirates. She was part of a global delegation of students representing more than 100 nations and 300 post-secondary institutions from around the world to understand and generate solutions for some of the world's greatest challenges.
In the fall, Katelyn will be continuing her studies at the University of Toronto as she works towards her master’s degree in teaching.
Erin Grant - Erin, a Bachelor of Aviation Technology student, has received many accolades including the Aramark Memorial Flight Program Award, Stephen E. Quinlan Award, honourable mention for the 2012 Co-op Student of the Year Award, and the CASI Toronto Branch Student Award for Seneca, awarded to the top graduating aviation student.
She is also part of Seneca’s new Jazz Cadet program and is working as a flight instructor at Seneca.
In order to win the Seneca Cup, a student must show excellence in academic achievement and demonstrate an active commitment to improve the quality of student life at the College. It is presented only when there is an exceptional student who is most deserving of this auspicious award.
