During the 2017-18 school year, Kiyora was a Grade 7 student at Hammond Elementary.
Behind the scenes Kiyora is a quiet leader. Her peers report that she is a very nice person to be around. They respect her for never involving herself in relationship dramas and for being kind and respectful to all.
She is in the Grade 7 leadership/WE team; she is a valuable buddy to many younger students; she has been a leader with the introduction of cooking in primary classes; and she has been an office monitor and primary class lunch monitor.
Kiyora participated in cross country and track and field and she enjoyed the challenge. Outside of school Kiyora enjoys writing stories, drawing, and playing guitar. Next year (2018-19) Kiyora is looking forward to attending Westview 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 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.
