2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Jordan Steeves, Edith McDermott

Jordan, a Grade 7 student at Edith McDermott Elementary during the 2018/19 school year, is quiet and unassuming and yet reliably gets things done without a lot of fanfare.

He is a true leader who doesn’t care for the spotlight but always gets involved and is quick to help. Jordan is one of only a few boys participating in our Global Citizens club.

He also attended WE Day as a representative of the Edith McDermott community. Outside of school, Jordan participates in bowling and archery and continues to find ways to support his community through his involvement with Scouts Canada.

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.
