2018 Leaders of Tomorrow: James Murdoch – Eric Langton

James Murdoch was a Grade 7 student at École Eric Langton Elementary during the 2017-18 school year.

James is kind towards others and is readily available to help wherever needed. He is a terrific leader and helper in the classroom and is part of our school community’s DSAC program. James has worked very hard over the past three years to emerge as a fair and respectful problem solver in the classroom and as an individual who initiates and leads class meetings.

As a member of DSAC, James has learned to set up the sound system for assemblies and events, he has taken the initiative to facilitate meetings, and he has emceed more than one event in front of the school. James’ positive transformation into an outgoing leader over the past three years makes him a terrific role model for other children in the school and a fantastic choice as a 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 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.
