Tuxedo Dental Group Education Bursary

Jake Esteves

A four-year Honour Roll student, Jake graduated from Collège Béliveau (a French immersion high school) in June 2022 with a 93% average in Grade 12. His senior year, he played centre on the Béliveau Barracudas hockey team, which ended its season as a B Division finalist. Jake was selected as an alternate for the 2022 B Division All-Star game and was voted by his teammates to receive the team’s 2022 Travis Price Spirit Scholarship, as well as winning the 2022 Béliveau Barracudas Scholastic and Hat Trick awards.

Outside of school, Jake held a part-time job throughout the academic year. For the second summer in a row, he is once again volunteering with the Leftovers Foundation food rescue charity, which diverts excess, consumable market and restaurant food from the landfill and redirects it to community non-profits and service agencies. Last summer, Jake personally travelled 131 kilometres while transporting 1,142 pounds of food between grocery stores and emergency shelters in Winnipeg.

This fall, Jake will attend the University of Manitoba, where he intends to explore his interests in the areas of architecture, city planning, and engineering as a University 1 student before finalizing his degree path.
