Known for his leadership on the ice, Xavier Simoneau also leads by example when it comes to schoolwork.
As captain of the Drummondville Voltigeurs, Simoneau sets the example for all his teammates by his involvement and by the importance he gives to the school component.
But his path as a student wasn’t always easy. Simoneau is a player who didn’t have much confidence in his capabilities as a student and who thought that success in school just wouldn’t come for him. Since the start of winter however, he’s made a complete turnaround. He’s now known as a student who perseveres through his schoolwork and who puts in all the necessary efforts to respect every course’s deadline.
Simoneau, who studies in the Social Science program at Cégep de Drummondville, maintained an average of 84% or better during last autumn’s semester. His educational objectives have also been updated as the forward is now aiming to not only obtain his Cégep degree but pursue a bachelor’s degree afterwards.
