The Halton Catholic District School Board is pleased to announce that Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School student, Amanda Rampertab, will be attending the University of Waterloo in September, 2014. Amanda has been awarded with the coveted 2014 Schulich Leader Scholarship.

Of the 1,147 nominees, Amanda is the recipient of the Schulich Leader Scholarship, which is given to top students planning to study in the areas of science, technology, engineering or mathematics (S.T.E.M.). Students must possess at least two of the following attributes in order to be considered candidates for the scholarship: academic excellence, financial need, and/or outstanding community, business or entrepreneurial leadership.

Through Holy Trinity’s 3161 Robotics Team, under the mentorship of the lead teacher, Mr. Roger Balech, Amanda has used her passion of engineering and technology to inspire her female classmates.

In addition, she has volunteered over 1300 hours and is actively involved in S.T.E.M. through a LEGO robotics competition, FIRST LEGO League (FLL), which is an international competition that introduces elementary school students to science and technology.

"I consider it my responsibility to give back to the program that has shaped my passion as an aspiring female engineer," says Amanda Rampertab."I believe that my dedicated involvement in promoting S.T.E.M. to an overlooked youth demographic is what being a Schulich Leader is all about."

The Halton Catholic District School Board congratulates Amanda Rampertab on her academic achievements and wishes her continued success in her Engingeering-Mechatronics program at Schulich!
