Chloe graduated from École Kelvin High School in June of 2020 with an overall average of 99.2% in her Grade 12 courses, and was awarded the Governor General’s Medal in recognition of her academic success.

Outside of school, Chloe kept busy working a part-time job and playing sports; throughout fall and winter, she spent many hours each week on the ice playing for the AA Magic ringette team. She also played for the Kelvin ultimate team during the fall season and trained throughout the winter to defend their two-time national champion title at the 2020 Canadian High School Ultimate Championships, which was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19.
This fall, Chloe is starting her Bachelors of Science at the University of Winnipeg. She looks forward to a future in the health sciences and to helping people in her community with her intelligence, determination, and kindness.
