St. Paul's High School is pleased to announce Mr. Mitch Bourbonniere '81 as the recipient of the 2016 Ignatian Challenge Award.
The Ignatian Challenge Award will be presented to Mitch at the 23rd Annual Tribute Dinner at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg on Tuesday, November 1st, 2016. The award recognizes individuals within our community who embrace the ideals of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, and who reflect the characteristics and qualities inherent in a Jesuit education at St. Paul's High School. Award recipients, through their leadership and commitment to service, become examples for our students of a lived faith and philosophy of becoming Men for Others.
The event is an annual fundraiser for the St. Paul's High School Bursary Program which provides need-based tuition assistance to qualified students. Bursaries are an essential aspect of a Jesuit education and provides opportunities to families who would not otherwise be able to attend St. Paul's High School because of financial constraints. Last year, St. Paul's High School awarded $392,000 in financial aid to qualified families.
