Laine Alexandra McLeod was an outstanding student who loved school and did her very best in all her endeavours. She was thoughtful of others, and the first to step forward to help someone in need. Laine was good-natured and had a terrific sense of humour. She liked to have fun and was a good friend. Laine received numerous awards, including the silver medal for Academic Achievement and was recognized by her peers with the Student of Term Award. Laine died as the result of a motor vehicle accident on July 23, 1999 at the age of twelve. The Laine McLeod Memorial Scholarship is a tribute to her and the personal characteristics for which she was known and loved: working hard to achieve scholastic excellence and a genuine sense of caring and sharing in her school community.
