Academy of Learning is pleased to announce that Kendra Leman received the gold medal for the Prairie Region from the Canadian Payroll Association. “When I was told I was receiving a bronze or silver or gold medal it felt awesome. This is a huge accomplishment for me,” says Kendra.
The Canadian Payroll Association annually honours individuals from each Region—Atlantic, Greater Toronto, Ontario, Pacific, Prairie and Quebec—who exemplify professional excellence by awarding a bronze, silver and gold award to the candidates who achieved the top marks in the core payroll courses of their certification programs.
As a graduate of both the Computerized Payroll Accounting and Business Administration Diplomas, at the Academy of Learning, Kendra says she didn’t always enjoy school. “Throughout high school I didn't do that well; however, I didn't really want to be there. Once deciding on going to college, I wanted to be there and I wanted to do the best I possibly could, so it was definitely rewarding to receive a Gold medal.”
Kendra is the first Academy of Learning graduate to receive a Gold medal from the Canadian Payroll Association.
“This is a wonderful achievement! Kendra is a shining example of how dedication and hard work can help you achieve your goals,” states Derek Hamill, President & CEO of Academy of Learning. “On behalf of the Directors and staff at all Academy of Learning locations across Canada, congratulations!”
