Congratulations to our 2022 recipient of The Miller Family Award: Manmeet Kaur Singh

Manmeet Kaur Singh was selected as the 2022 recipient of The Miller Family Award because of her positive energy and commitment to WIC. As a Senior Student Leader, she was always ready to lend a helping hand whether it be in setting up, planning or participating in any campus event. Our student leaders went above and beyond this year for the student body, planning engaging and fun events, bringing the students together, and helping to make a difference for others.

Not only was Manmeet involved in the West Island College Athletic Association (WICAA), but she was also a Mini Math mentor with the Secondary 1 students during her lunch breaks throughout the school year. She would visit the math classes and help small groups of students understand different Math concepts. She never missed a beat and was always ready to step in when others were not available. She was also involved in the wider community, as a peer tutor to elementary school students on a weekly basis in Pierrefonds.

Most importantly, Manmeet is a truly remarkable young person who was deeply engaged at WIC without expecting anything in return. We were so happy to have the opportunity to recognize her contribution to school life through this award and hope that others are encouraged by her example.

This $1,000 prize, donated by the Miller Family, is awarded annually to the graduating student who has actively and consistently contributed to school life. As one of the first families to attend WIC, the Miller Family was always there to lend a helping hand with small deeds that, over time, have made a large impact on the school.
