KAWARTHA LAKES: Four young women graduating from our local high schools were recognized on June 27th for their peer leadership with the Soroptimist Positive Influence Award from Soroptimist International of Kawartha Lakes.

Soroptimist International of Kawartha Lakes joins with the local schools in their annual recognition activities by presenting the award to a female graduating student from each of the city’s four secondary schools who models values, beliefs and attitudes that inspire others. The modest cash award is presented to a young woman for being an exemplary role model to her peers, focusing on positive character traits rather than academic or athletic achievement.

The 2024 recipients are:

Jayla Arkwright, Fenelon Falls Secondary School

Grace BigCanoe, Lindsay Collegiate and Vocational Institute

Paige Napier, St. Thomas Aquinas Secondary School

Evelyn Pascoe, I.E. Weldon Secondary School

Since the program’s inception in 2012, 44 young women have received the Positive Influence Award.

Soroptimist International of Kawartha Lakes is a volunteer service organization for women dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Founded in 2011, the club is part of Soroptimist International where more than 65,000 Soroptimists in 118 countries and territories contribute time and financial support to community-based projects that benefit women and girls.
