On Saturday PCI grade 12 student Emily Neufeld will be presented the Canadian Association of Principals (CAP) Student Leadership Award in Winnipeg.
The CAP Student Leadership Award is a scholarship of $750 which is given out to one graduating student in each province and two territories. The award is sponsored by The Canadian Association of Principals and Lifetouch Canada, and allows principals to recognize one of their student leaders.
Criteria for the award includes: leadership in school activities, leadership in the community, academic achievement, essay, and recognition, awards, honours and scholarships.
Neufeld has been involved in both school and community activities during her four years at PCI including being involved in badminton, doing score keeping for school sports teams, and being involved with the Teens Against Drunk and Distracted Driving (TADD) campaign.
"Through grades 11 and 12 volunteering became definitely a lot more important to me. I became involved with the Lions Prairie Manor - I got approximately 100 hours there over the summer - and also that was my first year on the PCI student council," said Neufeld.
Neufeld became the media rep on student council, a position she has held for two years.
Neufeld will be heading to the University of British Columbia in the fall to study pharmacy.
