A Q&A session with two previous winners

The Chief Noel Doucette Memorial Achievement Award was created in 1996 by the Province of Nova Scotia in memory of the late Chief Noel Doucette. It is awarded annually to Mi’kmaq youths who possess leadership qualities and reach high levels of academic achievement. The award’s first recipients were honoured in 1997 by Premier John Savage.

On Monday, October 1, 2012, more outstanding Mi’kmaw youth will join the list of respected winners. This article presents the story of two previous winners of the award. I hope that it encourages Mi’kmaq community members to nominate some deserving young students in your communities.
