Brianna Dyer, a Grade 7 student at Yennadon Elementary during the 2015-16 school year, says she “wants to do her part in making a difference in the world.”
Many of the teachers and students feel that Brianna has certainly done that and then some. You can find Brianna heading down the halls of Yennadon heading to her DSAC, WE Team or ultimate frisbee practice heading towards her goal of making a difference at Yennadon.
Brianna is described by her teachers as a quiet leader, inclusive of all members of the school community, mature beyond her years, a good listener, compassionate, respectful, humble, helpful and conscientious. Brianna embraces the opportunities offered in the classroom and school community.
One teacher said, “I believe Brianna’s education is greatly impacted by her ability to approach each learning task with a positive attitude and an open mind.”
Brianna states that her proudest accomplishment has been building a well in Kenya last year. Of the many goals that she would like to accomplish, she would like most to “somehow decrease global warming and help free children from child labour.”
Yennadon has been enriched by her presence and we cannot wait to see the accomplishments she achieves as she continues onto secondary and future endeavours.
About Leaders of Tomorrow
The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42) has teamed up with the Maple Ridge News to celebrate local students who are making a difference at school and in the community. Elementary and secondary students featured as Leaders of Tomorrow were picked by their principals for making positive achievements in academics, sports, arts and community involvement.
The list is just a sample of outstanding students in the school district selected by their school during the 2015/16 school year – there are many others who were equally deserving of recognition for their exemplary achievements both inside and outside the classroom. ?
Every Tuesday throughout the school year, SD42 will profile a student selected as one of the 2016 Leaders of Tomorrow.
