Alana Loveys claims Governor General's Medal, thousands in scholarships

The graduating class of 2012-13 from Carbonear Collegiate had one more night in the spotlight at the school during awards night on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

The Top-3 academic performers from the class of 2012-13 at Carbonear Collegiate were, from left, Brittany Traverse of Small Point, and Elizabeth Hicks and Alana Loveys, both of Carbonear.

The graduating class of 2012-13 from Carbonear Collegiate had one more night in the spotlight at the school during awards night on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

But it was Alana Loveys who rose to the top by claiming the coveted Governor General's Academic Medal, the prestigious Sentinel Award and a long list of scholarships and other awards valued at nearly $12,000.

Alana's accomplishments were among many highlights during the event as most of the nearly 100 grads reunited to celebrate the end of their high school careers and, for many, reap the rewards of their hard work.

The spotlight shined bright on graduates such as Loveys, Elizabeth Hicks and Brittany Traverse, who finished 1, 2 and 3 on the academic chart, with Loveys entering her public exams last spring with an overall average of 96 per cent.

Hicks finished with the top average in Level III, but it was the combined average from Level II and Level III that gave Loveys the edge in the quest for the Governor General's Medal, considered by many to be the most prestigious award that students in Canadian schools can receive. The medal does not come with a monetary award.

All three have begun their post-secondary studies, with Loveys studying commerce, Hicks is working towards an English degree, and Traverse has her sights on becoming an engineer. All three are enrolled at Memorial University.

Alana is the daughter of Rod and Joy Loveys, Elizabeth's parents are Barry and Cathie Hicks, and Brittany is the daughter of Gerard and Bev Traverse.

When asked about being presented with the Governor General's Award, Alana said she felt privileged to have earned such a distinction.

During her three years at Carbonear Collegiate, Alana was much more than an academic all-star. She was also a leader with the student council, and excelled in cross-country running.

"I had some great opportunities and experiences at this school," she said.

Alana said she hopes to eventually become a lawyer.
