We are very pleased to announce that our 2016 recipient of the Pat McGrath Scholarship has been selected.
Candice Gagne is attending Canadore College in North Bay to become a Biotechnology Technologist. She plans on going on to get a Bachelor of Science in 2017.
She is an activist for equality for all people and is part of Pride on Campus at Canadore as well as GEM (gender equality movement). She is first officer of her ship in KAG (a Klingon, [aliens from star trek] based SiFi Club), as first officer of her club she had it approved at her college as an official group as well as organize a fundraiser for our local crisis center. The reason she chose the crisis center to fundraise for is because as stated earlier she is all about equality and at the crisis center men, women and children can all use the facilities, if they are fleeing abuse, been evicted or simply need a place to stay the night.
