Royal Arcanum handed out one last time


Tuesday afternoon brought on a bittersweet moment as the Royal Arcanum was handed out for the final time. "The people that run the Royal Arcanum are very heartbroken." said Pete Cusumano, liaison between the international life insurance company and WECSSAA. "To them it's heartbreaking news the charter got pulled."


WECSSAA is now looking for someone to come in and fill the void moving forward. In the meantime Tuesday was a moment of celebration for the four final recipients of the Royal Arcanum Award.


Winning small school honours was Lily Mulder of North Star High School in Amherstburg and Ciaran O'Connor of Lajeunesse. Leah Tate of Holy Names and Villanova's Kalman Chyz were big school recipients.


"These are phenomenal kids and I know their marks. Their marks are all A-plus students." Cusumano said.
