DVSS student receives Lieutenant Governor’s Award

Keagan DVSS

A DVSS student was honoured with the Lieutenant Governor Student Award at a ceremony in Government House in Edmonton.
Keagan Farmer, 14, son of Stacey and Jack Hucaluk and grandson of Kevin and Linda Farmer all attended the ceremony on Monday, June 10. It included a luncheon along with the presentation of the award from Alberta Lieutenant Governor Salma Lakhani.
“It was exciting… he felt it was very important,” said mother Stacey.
The award is hosted by the Alberta School Board Association and endorsed by the Lieutenant Governor.
The awards recognize Alberta students in different grade levels who have shown tremendous growth in developing skills to better themselves by demonstrating determination, initiative and independence, which has led to their improved success both academically and personally. These awards will recognize individual success as well as work and effort applied to overcome academic challenges and will provide incentives to individual students to continue to strive for achievement and success in education.
There are nine awards given out each year to students throughout the province. Keagan will be going into Grade 10 next year.
