2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Mackenzie Bermudez, Arthur Peak Centre

Mackenzie Bermudez is a leader today and tomorrow. Mackenzie entered Arthur Peak Centre with the goal of completing her requirements for graduation. She has been an excellent role model for the students that she sits with and encourages students to do their best. She is working on the final requirements for grad and is taking the time to upgrade her marks. She works independently and she maintains a positive and helpful attitude.

Mackenzie used to play competitive soccer and was being considered for scholarships in the US. She sustained an injury to her knee that forced her out of the game. Since that time, she has suffered from a number of health concerns but hasn’t let these roadblocks stop her. 

Mackenzie now uses her knowledge and skills to help younger players as an assistant coach.  She organizes workouts, helps players to understand game strategies and makes sure that they have the necessary soccer equipment. She is organized and determined. These qualities help Mackenzie in her role as an assistant coach and her communication with the players. It is a pleasure to work with Mackenzie.

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.
