  Posted: June 7, 2016

Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) warmly congratulates Holy Family School grade five student Kyara Garnett who won the provincial Knights of Columbus Religious Vocations Awareness Drawing Contest.  Representatives from the Grimshaw Knights of Columbus presented the award, along with a cheque for $100, at the school assembly on Monday May 30th.

“Kyara competed against students from across the province and her drawing was selected as the best,” said Grand Knight Gilles Doucet.  “It is very rare for someone from a small town to win a contest like this.”

The school chose six entries to send to the local Knights of Columbus, who chose Kyara’s design to submit to the provincial contest.  The State Council then chose Kyara’s design as the provincial winner out of the 10 submitted from across the province.  The top 10 drawings each won $100 for their outstanding entries.  Kyara’s drawing will be posted on the provincial Knights of Columbus website to celebrate her big win.

“We are so proud of Kyara for her outstanding accomplishment,” said Holy Family School Principal Victoria Cornick.  “Her drawing is a reflection of her commitment to her faith and we look forward to seeing her artistic skills develop even further in the coming years.”
