Peel - The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is pleased to announce its Ontario Top Scholars for the 2011-12 school year.
Two Mississauga students, Melissa Phuong from Father Michael Goetz Secondary School and Dorothy Majewski from St. Francis Xavier Secondary School tied for the board’s Top Scholar position with an average of 98.83 per cent. Melissa will be starting the Health Sciences program at McMaster University in September and Dorothy will be studying Biological, Biomedical and Life Sciences at McGill University.
The leading scholars from Brampton are Anton Alaga from Cardinal Leger Secondary School and Brianna Guild from Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School. They both earned an average of 97.50 per cent. Anton will attend the Biological and Medical Sciences program at the University of Western Ontario in the fall and Brianna has been accepted into the Biochemistry program at the University of Guelph.
Daniel Lizewski from Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School was the board’s top scholar from the Caledon area with an average of 96.50 per cent. Daniel will be attending the Mechatronics Engineering program at the University of Waterloo in the fall.
Students must achieve an average of 80% or higher on their top six Grade 12 courses to be an Ontario Top Scholar. This year 2,567 Dufferin-Peel students earned this distinction.
“The outstanding academic achievements by these students should be recognized and applauded,” said John Kostoff, director of education. “Marks like these represent exceptional study habits with many hours of perseverance and dedication. These qualities should serve them well as they continue their academic journey at their chosen post-secondary institutions and beyond.”
