Hailey Noseworthy Awarded the Trevor Nason Memorial Award

Posted on Oct 26, 2017

Hailey Noseworthy of Valmont Academy, in King’s Point, has been awarded the Trevor Nason Memorial Award at SHAD UNB this past July.

SHAD is a prestigious summer program that selects high achieving students from high schools all across the county. It is focused on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). These students are seen as tomorrow’s future change makers and leaders.

Hailey is a very involved student both with her school and community. She was excited to be selected for SHAD 2017. After acceptance into SHAD through the Hibernia Scholarship, Hailey was more than proud to represent her school at her university of choice, the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton.

Throughout the month of July, Hailey explored STEAM and business topics. She networked with 78 others who represent some of the best and brightest from across Canada. She explored New Brunswick on the weekends with her group. After an intense 28 days, co-directors Ian Fogerty and Melissa Dawe, as well as Assistant Director Nathan Cameron, awarded Hailey the Trevor Nason Memorial Award. The award was started in memory of a previous program assistant who had a lasting effect on his students and won national awards for his teaching of science.

The recipient of this award embodies the values Trevor held in highest regard. The awardee is someone who has a great passion and appreciation for the STEAM fields and is always looking to learn more. This award is given to someone who is a mentor to anyone and everyone, and someone who is a selfless leader that has a continuous positive impact on the world around her. Hailey’s high energy and positive attitude, in addition to the way she used these attributes to create a warm and welcoming environment for the SHAD community at UNB, was appreciated and valued.
