2018 Leaders of Tomorrow: Matthew Shanley – Harry Hooge

Matthew is one of our Leaders of Tomorrow at Harry Hooge Elementary for the 2017-18 school year because he is recognized by staff and teachers as a natural leader.

He often looks for ways to include other students both in the classroom and around the school. His commitment to school teams is evident in his involvement in many activities. Matthew is on our District Student Voice team and jumps at opportunities to have his voice heard. He is a team player, a vital member of our school leadership group, has given tours of our school, has been a lunch time monitor, and can be relied on to represent our school at any given moment.

Matthew is a great athlete and an integral part of both our basketball and track teams both as a player and a leader. Matthew has high ambitions for his future in athletics. Matthew is a key member of our community at Harry Hooge; he often shows us what understanding and inclusion are.


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.
