Kahnawà:ke Education Center (KEC) (Kahnawà:ke, Quebec – 11 Tsothóhrha / December 2020) -We are very pleased to announce that two of our post-secondary students attending the Kahnawà:ke Bachelor of Education- Kindergarten/Elementary, First Nations and Inuit Studies Program have been awarded a merit-based monetary scholarship from the Québec Ministry of Education & Ministry of Higher Education. Both Corissa McComber and Ro'nikonhkátste Norton have achieved this exemplary award by having the highest CPGA (cumulative grade point average) in an education program throughout the entire province of Quebec.
Bethany Douglas, our Post-Secondary Distance Counselor had this to say to our high-achieving students,
“I want to congratulate both Ro’nikonhkátste and Corissa on receiving the Bourses d’excellence aux futurs enseignants. Their receiving this award speaks not only to their dedication to their own education but also to the education of their community. I’m proud that Corissa and Ro’nikonhkátste are among the 5 Indigenous recipients of this award at McGill.”
Three hundred and fifteen McGill Education students received this award, across all Bachelor of Education programs throughout the province. This includes Kindergarten-Elementary, Secondary, Physical and Health Education, Music Education, Teaching English as a Second Language, and Office of First Nations and Inuit Education programs. There were 5 Indigenous recipients from McGill, of which 2 are from the Kahnawà:ke Bachelor of Education Program.
We send a sincere, well-deserved Congratulations to both Corissa and Ro'nikonhkátste on their accomplishments.
