Academic Assembly Honours Top Achievers

On Monday, the school presented certificates and pins honouring those who had achieved academic success in the second term at an Academic Assembly held at Centenary Church. 
The evening included presentations to individuals who earned top averages in all grades. Students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 received red sweaters in recognition of their success. They were:
  • Grade 7: Benjamin Magnan
  • Grade 8: Clara Buck-Thompson
  • Grade 9: Lumina Yoshikawa
  • Grade 10: Laurie Aubin
  • Grade 11: Luke DeLaBruere
  • Grade 12: Jiaxuan "Jacky" Xu
The guest speaker for the evening was Siân Morgan. Ms. Morgan obtained a bachelors and master’s in electrical engineering from McGill University  and spent the first third of her career working abroad. After working in France and England, she returned to Montreal and obtained an accounting certification and MBA, before taking on the leadership of one of Videotron’s engineering departments. Here, she helped launch Videotron’s first mobile network and introduce 5G. Three years ago, Siân quit her job, studied finance and tried her hand at creative writing. After dozens of informational interviews, she discovered her new professional path as a research director at a Market Analyst firm based in California.  She now develops financial models and forecasts the future of the IT market for high-tech vendors and financial institutions. 
Siân joined the Stanstead College Red & White Foundation Board as a director in 2023. Siân had the good fortune of studying engineering at McGill with Mr. Van Dyke and Bruce Tracy, who just happens to be the brother of Head of School Joanne Carruthers and to whom Siân is married.

On Tuesday, the school awarded the Black Sweater to Madeline Lippmann, Grade 12. This is Madeline's third Black Sweater and her second consecutive. She earned it this term for being the Major S winner (basketball) in the second term with an average of at least 80%. The recipient is chosen by program directors with consideration for the candidate’s course level, course load and other school commitments. Congratulations!
