Theodore Ngo has been chosen as this year’s York Catholic District School Board top scholar.

A recent graduate of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme at St. Robert Catholic High School, Theodore earned a near perfect 99.83 per cent in his top six grade 12 classes. In addition to his studies, Theodore mentored younger students as part of the school’s individual pathways program and was a member of St. Robert’s HOSA chapter, which involves competitions and challenges in the medical and health science fields.

“The administrators and teachers position themselves in a way to help everyone succeed and do well,” said Theodore Ngo. “Challenging myself by learning new things, improving upon my skills and interests, and experiencing personal development is what motivates me to do well.”

Theodore is just one of the 3,524 other scholars from the York Catholic District School Board. He will begin the Life Sciences program at the University of Toronto in September.
