ADVOCATE – It was an all-Spicer graduation here on June 29, as Advocate District High School saw three more students complete their high school studies in the tiny seaside community.

Valedictorian Meggie Spicer was joined by brothers Alex and Daniel Spicer as Advocate’s Class of 2011, and all three received a number of awards for their efforts in front of friends, family and community members Wednesday evening.

“The only time you fail in life is when you don’t try,” said Meggie Spicer, in her valedictory address. “Don’t be afraid to set high goals and standards; the education we received here has given us a solid foundation of hard work and determination. Apply these principles to everything you attempt.”

Meggie Spicer, who graduated with Honours with Distinction, received two scholarships from the University of New Brunswick – a $1,500 renewable entrance scholarship and a $2,500 renewable athletic scholarship, as well as the QEII Medal and the Governor General Medal. Alex Spicer, who graduated with Honours, received a $2,700 renewable scholarship to Nova Scotia Community College. Daniel Spicer also graduated with Honours.
