Three of Westview’s students are the recipient of the Robert Little and Debra Deane Little Scholarships that provide consistent financial aid to academically capable students from the Windsor-Essex region, with a special focus on students who demonstrate a combination of academic ability, financial need and balanced personal development.
10 scholarships of $10,250 per year for up to 4 years are awarded to students who have applied to an accredited university and as stated above, three of them are ours. They will be celebrated 7:00 pm Tuesday June 1, 2021 at a board meeting. https://www.publicboard.ca
I would like to congratulate each of the students for their tremendous efforts and also acknowledge the outstanding work of Westview Freedom Academy staff for helping them along the way.
Below is information about each of the students.
Ndeye Kebe demonstrated leadership and resiliency since moving here from another country within the last year. During a challenging year, Ndeye has worked diligently to earn a strong academic average while always maintaining a positive outlook.
In the past Ndeye was the recipient of a Rotary Youth Leadership Award, played for her school’s soccer team, and dedicated a great deal of time tutoring others. Computer Science has always been a passion of Ndeye’s and she plans to continue her education at the University of Toronto studying Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics.
Ranim Hussin, can be proud of earning one of the highest academic averages in the building. She is consistently working hard, asking questions, and putting forward her best efforts towards academic achievement.
While maintaining high academic standards, Ranim has also been involved in a variety of community activities. These activities include offering translation services to others and being actively involved with Windsor Women Working with Immigrant Women. Her work ethic and studious nature will benefit her greatly as she plans to continue her education studying Biological Sciences at the University of Windsor.
Mahmoud Alkwisem entered Canada in 2016 knowing very little English. In a very short period, he became fluent in English and is graduating from Secondary School with excellent marks, which is quite an accomplishment.
While studying and learning at Westview, Mahmoud also contributed to his community. Mahmoud has volunteered his time at Habitat for Humanity, a local senior home and supported various people in his neighbourhood. His ability to balance academic success while making a positive contribution in his community will benefit him greatly while studying Computer Science at the University of Windsor.
