Connor Salt, a Grade 7 student at Eric Langton Elementary during the 2016/16 school year, is incredibly motivated, a tremendous leader, and a terrific role model.
Connor has incredible motivation both in and out of the classroom environment and he will do whatever is necessary to achieve academic success.
When Connor isn’t working hard to succeed at school, he is working hard to become the best hockey player he can possibly be. He plays, practices, and trains for hockey 12 months a year. This work ethic has allowed him to apply to, and attend, the Pitt Meadows Secondary School Hockey Academy for his Grade 8 year.
Connor is a tremendous leader in both the school and classroom communities. Within the school community, he has taken part in the District Student Advisory Council (DSAC) for the past two years where he was involved in helping organize and emcee assemblies, and helping organize any number of events that arise. What’s more, during the 2015/16 year he was chosen to attend School District 42’s Student Forum where he joined a group of students from across Maple Ridge in sharing their ideas and opinions about the educational system within our district – SD42.
Connor is also a tremendous leader within the classroom community. He is regularly relied upon to take the lead on performing any number of independent, or group, tasks for his teacher because he has a reputation for always “doing the right thing” and his peers respect his leadership qualities. He further demonstrates these leadership qualities by regularly, and respectfully, giving his peers advice about the rules, expectations, and responsibilities of students in his class; advice that Connor lives by and his classmates frequently heed.
By being incredibly motivated to achieve great successes and by being a tremendous leader, Connor is undeniably a terrific role model for students and adults alike. It’s these reasons that he is unquestionably a Leader of Tomorrow!
About Leaders of Tomorrow
