On June 7th we celebrated with the 5 recipients of Catalyst Scholarships for graduating students from the Halton Public School board. Pictured above with Catalyst founders Shirley and Doug Alexander are: KJ Lukas, Ashley Haick, Haylee Bloxham, Neel Dhingani, and Bhavini Tailor. In addition to a financial gift (administered by the good people at the Halton Learning Foundation), each of these young leaders will be receiving a year of monthly mentoring from Catalyst. During our reception they received some words of wisdom from Doug on how to maintain pursuit of their dreams in the midst of the realities of life. They were encouraged to: Read Extensively Be Creative Add Value BeĀ  their best even when tired Give generously expecting nothing in return Intentionally Seek Mentors It was an inspiring evening to hear the dreams of our recipients and anticipate the mark they will be leaving on the world as they move forward. Thanks also to the Harbour Banquet Centre for the facility and Watson’s Engraving for the awards.
