Kathryn Wyering and her twin sister Victoria scooped many of the awards granted during the Awards celebration at St. Augustine Catholic School on Saturday, Oct. 26 with many other students receiving recognition for their academic and athletic achievements.

Kathryn Wyering climbed up the platform 13 times to receive as many awards throughout the ceremony with her list of recognition including several academic achievement awards in addition to Governor General’s Medal, St. Thomas Aquinas Division Award, Ponoka Agriculture Society Award and Pope John Paul II Academic Excellence Award, among others.

Lauraine Weir, in presenting the Ponoka Agriculture Society Award, said Kathryn was not only a good student but also a proactive one and that she had been actually applying to institutions and educational establishments where she wants to pursue her studies.

Victoria Wyering was close behind her sister with 11 awards, many of them in the same categories as her sister, but she was individually recognized as a distinguished student by the Chamber of Commerce to receive the award.

The twins were followed by Alison Beier, with nine awards, including Star Catholic Bursary Award.

Recipients of other specialized awards included Kaitlin Lomas (Arthur Szynkowski Phys.  Ed. Award,), Breydon Kokas (IODE Awards for Jr. High) Tara Lynn Meikle (Royal Canadian Legion Branch 66 Award), Melissa Gartner (St. Lucia Award) Gaddiel Matira (St. Catherine’s Award).
