2018 Leaders of Tomorrow: David Buzza – SRT

We are very proud to call David Buzza an SRT Titan. David is an excellent student and a strong leader at SRT.

Academically, David is one of the top overall graduating students at the school in 2017-18 and is in competition for the Governor General’s Bronze Medallion (awarded to the top academic graduating student).  

David was the overall Top Academic Grade 11 student, he has been a straight A student (Top Titan) for every report card since starting at SRT in Grade 8, and he has won a number of awards, including a top finish for the SFU Math Award. David has also been offered a $27,000 entrance scholarship to UBC for September.

David is also an outstanding athlete. He was the starting point guard for the senior boys basketball team, captain of the soccer team and has been our Athlete of Month several times.  

Somehow, David finds time, as an Aboriginal Team Leader, to volunteer his time tutoring students and supporting games and tournaments.  One of David’s many goals is to, “educate our student body on past and present Aboriginal culture and to assist any struggling Aboriginal students in our school.”  

In the community, David has volunteered in summer camps and his church’s pre-teen youth group, as well as collecting thousand pounds of clothing for donation.

David has managed all of this while playing for the Fraser Valley Premier Soccer Club and maintained a straight A average for the last five years.  We look forward to watching David’s career. Go Titans!


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 2017/18 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 2018 Leaders of Tomorrow.
