Chili Leblanc-Wulff named GP Vanier’s Governor General Academic Medal recipient for 2019 grad class

Grade 12 was a busy year for Chili Leblanc-Wulff.

Some of the extra-curricular items that kept him occupied were prime minister of student council, member of Vanier’s Improv Team that competed at the Canadian National Improv Games in Ottawa placing third in the country, member of Vanier’s Destination Imagination team that took the top spot in the province, Vanier representative to Student Voice, valedictorian for his grad class and now add Vanier’s Governor General Academic Medal award winner.

This award is given to the member of the graduating class with the highest average of all their courses taken in Grades 11 and 12. The award is always a tight race, however Chili separated himself from several other candidates with an impressive average of 97.7 per cent.

Chili’s courses included a wide variety of subjects, some of which were calculus, chemistry, biology, accounting, and theatre 12. When asked about his approach to his classes, his response was that he went into each subject with the attitude of wanting to learn as much as possible in each area, which would make each class more enjoyable.

Chili was an essential part of several improv teams mentoring younger students, as well as a key technician and performer in several plays in his Grade 11 and 12 years. What makes his accomplishments even more impressive is the limited amount of time he had to do many of these tasks, travelling to and from Denman Island most days to get to school.

Chili is attending the prestigious Sauder School of Business at UBC, working on his long term goal of pursuing a career in a marketing company that has an impact on the world.

The staff of Georges P Vanier Secondary congratulate Chili Leblanc-Wulff on winning this distinguished award and applaud his continued academic success at the post-secondary level.
