Sister Geraldine MacNamara Scholarship recipient  (2021)

Leo Beam graduated from Rising Sun in June, 2021. He began the Educational Assistant program at Urban Circle in October, 2021

Leo said that he was a full grade behind when he started at Rising Sun high school. His teacher, Jenn, believed in him and, thanks to her encouragement, Leo graduated with his friends.

Leo shared that April, the EA at Rising Sun, was also a positive influence in his life. He says that they met when he was in grade 7 and she always reminded him to be himself, saying there is no one better at being you, than you!


Leo wants to be an Educational Assistant because he wants to help the future generations on their education journey and hopefully encourage them!

We are very pleased to award Leo the Sister Geraldine MacNamara scholarship and wish him every succuss!
