 Good Citizenship Award

2021 Good Citizenship Award for Luke Bessette.  We were pleased and honored to recognize Luke. His qualifications and accomplishments include:

Luke is among the top 1% of students. He never took a day off, and was unfailingly prepared for and engaged in class.  His writing, which he always honed with a draft, was excellent displaying cogent argument, nuanced expression  and polish. He has achieved at a very high level across all classes earning him membership in the National Honor Society and a Parvis scholarship. He has the intellect, work ethic and maturity to make a seamless transition to the demands of higher education.

Outside of the classroom, Luke has dedicated himself to various pursuits. He is a talented baseball player who is passionate in his dedication to honing his craft as a pitcher. He is one of the stars of the varsity team and also plays on a club team which competes regionally. He is also a generous volunteer who has given generously on campus as a student ambassador and off campus to Special Olympics and as a camp counsellor. That Luke can so capably balance his athletic and volunteer commitments with his ambitious academic course load speaks to his time management skills and tireless work ethic.
