2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Lucas Constable, THSS

Lucas has always been known as someone who gets fully involved in the world around him. He has been interested in engaging with the community and beyond for many years. He has dedicated many hours to extracurricular activities like martial arts, scouting, piano and guitar. Lucas has always enjoyed everything school has to offer, including academic studies and many club activities. He is a member of jazz band and has been part of THSS Sightline Theatre productions for the past three years, as crew and now on stage.

Since elementary school, Lucas has been involved in school-run programs that focus on helping people locally and globally. Lucas had the privilege of attending his first WE Day in his Grade 7 year and has always been inspired by that experience, raising money to donate overseas.

Lucas’ main focus for leadership has been through his school’s KEY Club, a service and leadership club sponsored by Kiwanis. This club is student run and dedicated to service of others, and Lucas has served on the executive, most recently as president. For the past five years, Lucas has been involved in the Student Voice group, a district wide leadership group that brings students from all the schools together for a common purpose. This past year Lucas was very excited to be accepted into the Big Brothers program and have the chance to be a mentor for a younger student. He looks forward to their weekly visits.

Lucas is an advocate for youth having a voice at the table. He has spoken before the school board to share his perspective on mental health supports in school. Lucas is currently part of a larger Youth Planning Council in the community, bringing the youth perspective to the table. Lucas is excited for the future, and his part in leading it.

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.
