A student who was a leader in both school life and sports was F.P. Walshe school’s nominee for a prestigious scholarship.
Logan Gregory, 18, was one of six finalists for the annual Lloyd Cavers Scholarship.
“Logan is one of those quiet, competent individuals who makes a daily positive contribution to his school community,” teachers Chris Schalk and Alina Ascione wrote in their nomination.
“He has consistently demonstrated leadership qualities in the classroom, in the hallways and in his greater community,” Schalk and Ascione added. “He is a strong academic student who will continue to make a positive difference in the world.”
The Lloyd Cavers Scholarship, named for a former Livingstone Range School Division superintendent, recognizes students for academic achievement as well as their accomplishments and contributions to community service, the arts, athletics and leadership.
Each high school in Livingstone Range nominates a Grade 12 student for the scholarship.
The 2012 nominees were Shayne Hill, Bryan Koentges, Michaela Purra, Ashlene Wiebe and Ryerson Seguin.
Seguin, a student at Willow Creek Composite high school in Claresholm, received the scholarship.
F.P. Walshe school assistant principal Brenda Bryson said Logan was an excellent choice for the scholarship.
“He is one of those people who can be counted on to get involved in local events and to be a lead contributor of both his time and organizational skills,” Bryson said.
Gregory was involved in F.P. Walshe school student council for six years, and in his Grade 12 years was president of the grad council.
“Logan is an honest, modest, hard-working person who demonstrates respect for his fellow students and for his environment,” Schalk and Ascione wrote in their nomination.
Schalk and Ascione also praised Gregory for his citizenship, noting he is involved in school, community and church activities.
“Logan is an excellent ambassador for youth, demonstrating a commitment to community through volunteering with community events and by being an active participant in the activities both in school and in his community.”
In June, Gregory and Amanda Hofer received the Danny Van Wyk Memorial Award, which recognizes F.P. Walshe school students for their pleasant personalities, outstanding moral character, compassion and involvement in school life.
Gregory was also a top athlete at F.P. Walshe school, playing volleyball, basketball and competing in track and field.
Gregory was a member of the Fort Macleod Sharks Swim Club, and this summer is working as a lifeguard at the Fort Macleod pool.
Despite his busy schedule, Gregory maintained honour roll standing at F.P. Walshe school.
Gregory is enrolled in the Bachelor of Science program at the University of Lethbridge this fall and will study kinesiology.
“Logan is of excellent character and is respected by peers and staff alike,” Schalk and Ascione noted.
