Have you ever tried to define leadership in your own words?

Some of the most memorable leaders have been inspirational because of their courage to take on difficult and challenging issues. These individuals have the ability to go beyond the status quo; step out of their comfort zone and seize the unfamiliar.

Two outstanding young leaders in our community not only demonstrated courage, but embodied many of the same attributes common in many great leaders; perseverance; optimism; passion and the ability to speak out about their beliefs.

Amanda Viger, an active student leader in the Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School community and dedicated Hamilton Crew for Action Against Tobacco (HCAAT) volunteer is remembered for her exceptional courage and as a leadership role model.

Amanda, a vivacious, and inspiring young woman touched many lives even during her courageous battle with cancer. In Amanda’s memory, Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School and Hamilton Public Health Services created the Amanda Viger Memorial Student Leadership Scholarship. Nominees are eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their postsecondary education.

Cardinal Newman Secondary School and Hamilton Public Health Services would like to acknowledge and congratulate Julia Sanges, the first recipient of the Amanda Viger Memorial Student Leadership Scholarship.

A senior at Bishop Tonnos Catholic Secondary School, Julia was nominated for her exemplary leadership. As a member of her school’s antitobacco industry group S. T. A. T. S., Julia is known for her enthusiasm and for having “volunteered a tremendous amount of fantastic energy.”

With her strong people skills and passion for the cause, Julia rallied her peers and supporting adults to take down Big Tobacco through a wide range of school events. Julia honed her public speaking and advocacy skills while mentoring new group members and giving presentations about the tobacco industry to middle school audiences. Julia embodies all the characteristics for which Amanda Viger was known.
