Each year, the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) celebrates exceptional students across our school district at the Annual Student Awards of Excellence Ceremony. This year, due to COVID-19 precautions in place, we are recognizing and congratulating our student recipients virtually!
Congratulations to Lauren Ferzoco who won the Student Award of Excellence for our school!
Lauren is an executive member of St. Francis Xavier’s Best Buddies chapter and demonstrates commitment to her role as a peer buddy to students with developmental disabilities. With her vibrant and endearing personality, Lauren leads by example to organize inclusive opportunities for mentors and mentees to socialize in the school and develop meaningful friendships. She exemplifies the school’s motto: “to accept, include, and serve with love.”
