Meaghan Durupt is a compassionate and thoughtful Grade 7 student at Golden Ears Elementary (2018/19). She participates in several clubs at school including Tech Club and Student Voice.
Meaghan likes being part of the creative and technical force behind the scenes in her work with the Tech Club, bringing enjoyment to others at the school and the surrounding community.
Through her involvement in Student Voice, Meaghan feels she has grown in her understanding that community is much more than just your local surroundings and actually includes a much larger scope. One of Meaghan’s recent passions is her involvement in the Cultural Update Task Force and their creation of the 10-year plan for Maple Ridge. She and her parents are also involved in the Maple Ridge Heritage Society and the BC Heritage Federation. And these are just a few of Meaghan’s numerous community involvements!
Meaghan’s belief in the value of helping in the community has been inspired by her own family. She has seen their efforts to help others in the community and has also seen the community help them during times of need. Meaghan feels she is following in her family’s footsteps.
Meaghan enjoys this community involvement and hopes to inspire others to make a difference in their community. Meaghan truly embodies being a student leader in the school and community.
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.
