First recipient of the 2008 Luke Santi Memorial Award for Student Achievement
Congratulations to former Centre Hastings Secondary School student Paul Brogee, the first recipient of the 2008 Luke Santi Memorial Award for Student Achievement. Mr. Brogee received this distinguished award in Waterloo on Wednesday, November 5, 2008.
According to the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, “. . . this award is presented annually in memory of Luke Santi who, as a high school student, demonstrated a passion for research and discovery, earned top marks in his courses, took part in a variety of extra-curricular activities, and volunteered his time in service of others. In honour of Luke’s many accomplishments and contributions, the award is presented annually to a Canadian student who demonstrates Luke’s many qualities – academic performance, interest in science, extra-curricular activities and volunteering – and has begun post-secondary education in Physical Sciences at a Canadian university. One award of $1,000 will be made each year to a student who has been accepted into a full-time academic program in Physical Sciences at a Canadian university and is fully planning to continue with a second, full-time semester in physics at the same or other Canadian university. The successful student is expected to direct the award toward tuition for continued studies in physics.”
