2016 Leaders of Tomorrow: Grace, Alicia and Meghan – Hammond

Pictured above (left to right): Grace Jorgensen, Alicia Peever and Meghan Toolsie.

When staff were asked which students stand out as leaders at Hammond during the 2015-16 school year, Grace Jorgenson, Alicia Peever, and Meghan Toolsie came to everyone’s mind right away. 

All three are key members of the Student Leadership Team, which organizes events such as the “water walk” and helps contribute beyond our school community; they help monitor our “green” room, helping younger students self-regulate; they participate in all team sports (basketball, volleyball, ultimate, track), and they are positive and encouraging with all their peers.

Grace Jorgenson is a quiet leader in learning activities and sports. She sets a great example by always trying her best and she’s always smiling and encouraging others. Grace plays the piano, plays U14 MSL soccer for Poco Castillians, plays Revolution basketball, and softball with the Ridge Meadows 03 Pride. Grace is looking forward to the high school sports world at Pitt Meadows Secondary.

Meghan Toolsie makes everyone laugh and her positive vibe is contagious. She has high energy and she is very competitive while at the same time always modeling fair play.  Outside of school Meghan plays for the U14 Poco Strikers Div. 1 Gold team. Next year she is looking forward to joining her sister at Westview Secondary.

Alicia Peever is always asking staff “how can I help?” She puts everyone else’s needs first. Alicia is thoughtful and caring in everything she does. Outside of school Alicia plays for the U14 West Coast Auto Group Div. 2. She is looking forward to attending Maple Ridge Secondary.


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 2015/16 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 2016 Leaders of Tomorrow.
