Twenty-one years ago, the Today’N’Tomorrow Young Parent Program was established onsite of GP Vanier Secondary School and since its inception it has seen over 100 graduates.

This year we are pleased to shine a light on graduate Katrina Milford. In her third trimester of pregnancy, and after being out of school for two years, Katrina made the plunge and returned to school to complete one outstanding course: Grade 12 English.

While many expectant mothers would be on maternity leave at the end of their pregnancy, Katrina pushed forward and attended classes until two days before baby Ella Grace Pepin was born.

Katrina’s hard work and determination made her the perfect recipient for the program’s bursary.

The bursary is awarded to a graduate of the program who plans to pursue a post-secondary course or institution. Katrina plans to attend North Island College in January and pursue a certificate in Early Childhood Education.
