The Governor General’s Academic Medal was first awarded in 1873 and has since become one of the most prestigious awards that a student in a Canadian educational institution can receive. The governor general of Canada continues this tradition of encouraging scholarships across the nation and recognizing outstanding students.
The Governor General Academic Medal is presented to the top student in the school’s graduating class based on his/her grade eleven and twelve final marks.
This year’s recipient is described by her teachers as an independent learner, self-disciplined, internally motivated, reliable, conscientious, efficient, a quick learner and as having a tireless work ethic. She has a passion for learning and impeccable attention to detail. This year’s recipient was not only a dedicated student in the classroom, but was also a dedicated student in our Martensville High School community. She is currently attending the University of Saskatchewan in the College of Education.
Congratulations Teah Lennea on being Martensville High School’s 2019-2020 Governor General Academic Medal recipient!
