We are thrilled to share the news that one of our Graduates, Iakoiehwáhtha (Iako) Patton, Class of 2016, has been awarded the Rhodes Scholarship for 2023. She is one of 11 Canadians awarded the honour this year, joining a class of 100 from over 60 countries to study at the University of Oxford next year. Iako is completing her undergraduate degree in Art History, Anthropology and Renaissance Studies at the University of Toronto. You can read more about her studies here.
A Trafalgar student from 2011 to 2016, she demonstrated all the qualities sought in a Rhodes Scholar - intellectual distinction, concern for others, leadership, and a focus on public service. As her former teacher, Ms. Allison, said: “Iako was a hardworking student with an artistic soul. She stands out to me as someone who was genuinely curious about all things beautiful.”
We ask you to join us in congratulating Iako on this tremendous achievement.
