Alexandria student wins francophone scholarship

The season of high school graduations and awards recently peaked and a student at École secondaire catholique Le Relais in Alexandria has received an award for her contributions to the school and local francophone community.

Grade 12 graduate Mylène Levert is one of five students across Canada to receive a $2,000 scholarship from the Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC) and the Fédération de la jeunesse canadienne-française (FJCF).

Recipients have demonstrated involvement in their schools and communities through actions that showed commitment to the influence of francophone communities in Canadian society.

Levert has been a strong promoter of her school and youth engagement in environmental and social justice issues.  She has been a regular host of a podcast on various topics as well.

The scholarship application was submitted back in May. Levert said receiving it provides a great source of funding for her post-secondary education plans.  She is set to begin studies at Collège La Cité in Ottawa this September for a diploma in public relations.
