Angelo Varuzza, a student at St. Dorothy Elementary School in St. Michel, was recently presented with the HSBC Future Leaders Program Award. He   was nominated for this award by the school and The Breakfast Club of Canada. HSBC has donated $1 million to support breakfast programs in five cities across Canada over three years.  Angelo was one of seven recipients in Canada to receive an exciting recognition package designed to help support the student’s future education needs. This included a $1,000 credit to the HSBC High Rate Savings account in his name and an all-expenses paid trip to Toronto where astronaut Chris Hadfield was the guest speaker.  Principal Sandra Leveille said that he chosen because his contributions have had a positive impact on both his school community as well as Montreal North. At school, Angelo is very helpful as he often volunteers to assist his teachers at recess around the classroom or the school. Angelo also donates his time at his parent’s bakery in Montreal North by taking on daily chores. In addition he also helps prepare meals for homeless people around his neighborhood.  Childcare Worker Marco DeCrescentis nominated Angelo for the award.
