Madeleine Léger '19
A graduate of École Sainte-Anne, the only francophone school in Fredericton, NB, Madeleine Léger is committed to celebrating her bilingual province.

"Within the next few years, I hope to bring the Semaine provinciale de la fierté française to Mount Allison, which is an annual observance of the presence of the francophone culture in New Brunswick," says the first-year Arts student and Bell Achievement Award recipient. "For Francophones and Anglophones alike, I hope to make this celebration a reminder of the richness of bilingualism."

Expressing she "chose Mount Allison because I felt like I could belong here," Léger is involved in a number of groups on campus including the Creative Writing Society and her residence house council. She plans to major in English.

Léger served as founder and editor of her high school’s newspaper and captain of the debate team. She also wrote and directed two plays for school’s theatre club, putting on their grad show. A member of the Frye Academy, she was also a tutor, volunteer, and mentor with many school and community groups.
