During the 2016/17 school year, Will was a Grade 7 at Alexander Robinson, a school he started attending in Grade 4. He is a good role model for peers as he leads by his example of being involved and helping others.
Will has two years of a school-based leadership program under his belt and has attended We Day twice. Not only is he reliable and trustworthy, he is also inclusive of others and very compassionate.
An enthusiastic participant in drama initiatives, Will is also always ready to help as the crew for productions. Outside of school, this loving big brother also plays and umpires baseball, as well as fences. Will says his motivation to be involved in things is inspired by the memory of his grandfather who was a baseball enthusiast, a scientist, and an overall great man. In the future, Will wants to be a scientist and wants to see gender equality more prevalent in society. Best wishes for high school Will. You will be sorely missed at AR.
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 2016/17 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 2017 Leaders of Tomorrow.
