Kes, 17, is a graduate of Kennebecasis Valley High School, in Quispamsis, N.B., and a recipient of a 1999 National Biology Competition Scholarship, as is fellow Kennebecasis graduate and U of T student Jeremy Oickle. Kes, who is planning to specialize in ecology, is taking courses in biology, psychology, organic chemistry, English, and calculus in her first year and is in residence at U of T's Trinity College. Kes, who enjoys fencing, swimming, rollerblading, going for long walks, and dancing in her spare time, was a horseback riding instructor last summer and is a National Pony Club Rally Champion, member of Amnesty International, and an Advanced Placement National Scholar. Kes is keen to acknowledge that her biology teacher at Kennebecasis, Mr. Gallant, is an "amazing teacher."
