2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Kyle Martin, Eric Langton

Kyle Martin is a Grade 7 student at Eric Langton Elementary School (2018/19). He is incredibly motivated, a tremendous leader, and a terrific role model. Kyle uses his incredible motivation both in and out of the classroom environment.

Within the classroom environment, he is motivated to do whatever is necessary to achieve great success in both academic and extra-curricular activities. Since his first day four years ago, Kyle has always been a regular voluntary contributor to lessons and activities in the classroom. He has never been afraid to try his best or ask for help because he has always known that learning is a process that involves individual effort and community help.

Kyle has also achieved amazing successes on the boys’ basketball team and at numerous track and field events. He was an integral member of the boys’ competitive basketball team that demonstrated tremendous heart and growth this season and he garnered several prestigious recognitions in track and field including high jump, long jump and several running events.

Kyle is a terrific leader in both the school and classroom communities. Within the school community, he has taken part in the District Student Advisory Council (DSAC) where he was involved in helping organize and emcee assemblies and helping organize any number of charity events that arose. Kyle was also one of two boys who were regularly responsible to set-up and disassemble the sound system for all assemblies and school-wide events that depended upon efficient technology to deliver important lessons, entertainment, and messages to the entire school.

Kyle is also a tremendous leader within the classroom community. He is regularly relied upon to take the lead on performing any number of independent, or group, tasks for his teacher and his peers respect his leadership qualities. He further demonstrates these leadership qualities by regularly, and respectfully, giving his peers advice about the rules, expectations, and responsibilities of students in his class; advice that Kyle regularly lives by and his classmates admire. What’s more, Kyle regularly demonstrates caring and empathy towards his classmates, little buddies, adults, and students in the school and he loves to brag about how much he loves his family.

By being incredibly motivated to achieve great success and by being a tremendous leader, Kyle is incontestably a terrific role model for students and adults alike. It’s these reasons that he is an amazing Leader of Tomorrow!

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.
