Sophia Sabatino - Kindness Foundation of Canada Scholarship Winner
As a student at Magee Secondary, Sophia was very active in the school community. In grade 8 and 9, Sophia was a member of the Magee leadership program. This program focused on community service while maintaining high academic standings. Following that, Sophia was a part of the Evolution Choir and was a founding member of the Best Buddies Club at the school. Her involvement with the Best Buddies Club continued into grade 11 and 12 as Sophia worked closely with students in the Learning Assistance/ Life Skills class on a daily basis and was their drama coach throughout the year. This involved assisting these students develop and practice appropriate social skills and behaviour both in the classroom, school community, and beyond. Sophia was also selected to be one of the schools 27 Peer Counsellors this year, which focused on helping incoming grade 8’s transition smoothly into their first year of high school. To end off the year with a bang, Sophia led a team of AP art students in creating and putting together the set for this year’s school musical, Spamalot. At her grad ceremony, Sophia was very proud and honoured to receive the Kindness Foundation of Canada, Nadine Marshall Memorial Scholarship, one other school scholarship and the Student Council Best Citizen award. Sophia would like to thank her family, friends and teachers for all their support and encouragement throughout her school career.
