Bronte Elphick-Miner is one of those few leaders who is absolutely well rounded. She is multi-talented and willing to try almost anything that leads to improving herself and her community. A true role model, Bronte leads those around her on an optimistic path towards change.
As Bronte actively pursues knowledge, she is also a top athlete in soccer and track. She competes with great determination and skill, and as a result has been asked to be a part of Abbotsford’s Senior Select team, and to compete in the 100-metre hurdles.
As a junior journalist for the Maple Ridge News, Bronte encourages readers to ask key questions as she provides another perspective on numerous issues affecting the community. She has resolutely committed to this work for over two years, staying open to both positive and negative feedback, and has also led MRSS’s Toastmasters Club.
Bronte’s creativity and entrepreneurship are rooted in the arts, and particularly come to life when she is sitting at a sewing machine and creating a piece of her own design, or at a pottery wheel with clay spinning in her hands. Although she wears many of her own creations (including her graduation dress), she also sells her products or gives them away as gifts.
With offers from multiple universities across Canada, Bronte is already putting her many talents to work to shape the future and improve this world. Bronte always finishes what she starts, and with an unforgettable style and flair.
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.
