KINGSTON STUDENT WINS PRESTIGIOUS ROY COOPER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
The Learning Disabilities Association of Kingston is pleased to announce that a local high school student, Jacob Clancy, won the Roy Cooper Memorial Scholarship for the 2017-2018 academic year. The Scholarship, which is offered by the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario (LDAO) recognizes and rewards outstanding students who have a diagnosed learning disability and are pursuing higher education in the Physical Sciences. The annual award is valued at $1,000.00.
Local student Jacob Clancy graduated from Sydenham High School in the spring of 2017 and began his studies in Mechanical Engineering at Lakehead University in the fall of 2017. As a public school student Jacob learned to recognize and accommodate to significant challenges in communications and information processing, helping him to succeed as a student and in other areas of his life, and to earn academic qualifications that resulted in an offer of admission from Lakehead University. Jacob applied to Lakehead due to its smaller class sizes and the availability of academic support programs. He faces lots of challenges as he moves from his hometown to a new community where he will have to form new relationships and find new supports. Jacob’s history of volunteering in sports and mentoring give him a strong foundation to embark on this new phase of his life. LDAK wishes Jacob all the success he deserves.
