Secondary Division VP of Programs
Karmen is an extremely hard-working student. Consistently, she completes work before it is due, and to a high quality. Her attention to detail sets her apart from her peers, as does her passion for learning. She asks great questions—she is interested in the learning more than the grade, which is unusual for a sophomore student. Though Karmen is at times shy, her confidence has grown over the two years that I’ve known her. She is a great role model and her peers look up to her for guidance. She is one of the most considerate students that I’ve ever taught, and always thinks of others before herself.
Post-Secondary Division President
Cameron is a hardworking student; he is constantly going the extra mile to get things done proficiently. He works hard in his studies, and I’ve noticed that when given a project or assignment he is often surpassing the requirements and pushes himself to grow and learn as much as possible! Cameron is a student with strong focus, who takes his academics very seriously and always gives 100%, even when other students are distracted.
Cameron is trustworthy, and a natural leader. He is constantly willing to help others and is one of the students I feel I can rely on. When given responsibility, I know the job will get done. Cameron is a very caring and passionate person. He is accepting of others and their individual personalities, and I am confident in his leadership abilities.
