2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Jaida Ellis, Edith McDermott

Jaida is one of the most motivated and involved Grade 7 students you will have the pleasure of knowing.

She is involved in multiple sports at school and plays ice hockey in the community. When she is not out on the field or on the ice, Jaida can be found supporting community events and participating in local politics. 

She also acts globally through Student Voice, Global Citizens, WE Day, and other volunteer opportunities at the school.

Always first to raise her hand, Jaida has been an office monitor as well as a classroom monitor and was also the runner-up for her grade in our school public speaking event. Jaida is not just a future leader…. She is also a leader today.

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.
