2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Ben Barnier, Webster’s Corners

Ben is an exceptional leader at Webster’s Corners Elementary.

At a small school, it’s often all hands on deck and Ben is always the first one to volunteer to help with any task, no matter how big the task may be. Ben has been a huge part of the school’s ME to WE Club and senior leadership team. He always has great ideas and words of encouragement for everyone around him. 

Ben has been a huge help to many of our younger students and acts as a mentor to several younger Webster’s kids during his recess and lunch time.

He spends his free time making sure they have someone to talk to and someone to help them navigate through the school during those times. In class, Ben is always enthusiastic and participates in class discussions. He’s a great leader in projects but he also knows when to listen to others and make sure that their ideas are included. Ben demonstrates a strong sense of fairness, equality, and empathy and he definitely glows with Webster’s Pride!

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 2018/19 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 2019 Leaders of Tomorrow.
