Alexander Gardiner

The 2022 Patrick J. Maloney Memorial Bursary, offered by the local Knights of Columbus, was awarded to local North Grenville District High School graduate and Holy Cross Church parishioner Alexander Gardiner. The $1000 bursary was open to graduates from the local French and English school boards. The award emphasized academic excellence and parish and community participation. Alex hopes to study and work in the software engineering and computer science field. To that end, he completed a Specialist High School Major in Technology at North Grenville.

Given that Pat Maloney was an avid musician, he would have been pleased to note Alex’s participation in the after school African Drumming course, where they performed musical pieces from Africa and won a gold award in the MusicFest Canada Nationals in 2019. We wish Alex every blessing in his future endeavours.

The bursary was presented to Alex at Holy Cross Church after Sunday Mass.
