High marks, practical experience and community involvement have paid off for Walkerville Collegiate Institute senior Tacen Huezo.

He is among a select number of Canadian high school students to be awarded an $80 thousand Schulich Leadership Scholarship and will attend Queens University in September to study Computing.

Huezo is a multiple winner of the WCI Honours and Principal’s awards during his high school career. He has completed the Youreka Kingston Program – a university level course which teaches students about citizen science and allows them to conduct their own research to address issues within their communities. Tacen has also worked in his chosen field with Code Ninjas, helping kids learn to code.

His ultimate goal is to start up an innovative cryptography company to create new ways of keeping data safe and private.
