Dr. Martin LeBoldus Catholic High School

My name is Riddore Creer and I am a Grade 12 student at Dr. Martin LeBoldus Catholic High School. If you ask most people at my school who I am, they would most likely say that I am the enthusiastic guy on the intercom. I am a very energetic and outgoing person and have been very involved in my school community since Grade 9. I am blessed to have been involved in the music and drama programs and I have also been a part of MINGA and Multicultural Club. My faith has always been very important to me, and I have loved sharing it through my role as theLiturgical Representative on the SRC and through my involvement with Aramaic, the praise and worship band at my school. I have always strived to create a welcoming, open, and loving community at my school, so everyone feels that they belong. I am a very outgoing, passionate, and diligent person, due in part to being raised by strong and hardworking immigrant parents.They have always inspired me to do my best and to pursue my dreams, without being afraid to do so. This is why I will be moving to Toronto to pursue a career in nursing at Ryerson University. Although I am unsure of where my life will go, I am ready to tackle adulthood, to follow my dreams on my journey, and to spread positivity and kindness to the world

Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School

My name is Nathan Cameron. I go to Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School. I belong to the SRC Tech Ops team as senior tech, so on school assembly days, before choir concerts,and other events you’ll see me running around setting things up and making sure everything runs smoothly. I have also enjoyed being a member of Choir and Vocal Jazz since grade nine. This has encouraged me to open up and to push myself out of my comfort zone. As well as being involved in these extracurricular activities, I work hard at school in my classes, which include AP Math, AP English and AP Art.

Outside of school, woodworking is a huge passion of mine. I got into the hobby after I acquired many of my great-grandfather’s tools from my grandma, and have grown my collection since then. I make things like pens, bowls, ring sand anything I can think of. I also enjoy robotics and 3D printing, but mostly I like to turn things that look like nonsense into pretty sweet projects.

After high school, I planonstudyingSoftware Systems Engineering at the University of Regina and hope to get a job in the AI sector. On the side I plan to continue my woodworking hobby and hope to create a small business out of it.

Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School

My name is Karlee Cooper and I am a proud student of Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School. My 4 years have been busy as I have tried to be as involved as possible. Getting involved with sports such as volleyball, basketball, track and rugby introduced me to many friends. I enjoy participating in theatre and have loved experimenting with improv and one acts and helping with costumes for the productions. These opportunities encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and shaped the outgoing personality I have today. I am a big fan of school spirit and have enjoyed being a member of the SRC. Additionally, I am thankful for the opportunity to be the Co-President of our Best Buddies chapter and getting to know each student. I find great joy in spending time with the FIAEP students and have taken part in That’s Possible Theatre and Special Olympics Basketball, forming lasting friendships. These activities have developed my passion for helping others and being a friend to all. I spend my free time working two part-time jobs at the YMCA Childcare Center and as a lifeguard/swim instructor or volunteering and hanging out with friends.

Academically, I am a top achieving student, taking great pride in my success and hard work. My goal is to earn great distinction again this year. I enjoy the challenge of AP courses and am currently taking Advanced English. I am looking forward my future at the University of Regina next fall, studying in the Faculty of Education.

Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School

I am a student at Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School where I am currently finishing my grade 12 year. In my four years, I’ve made many wonderful memories in school extracurricular activities such as being on the SRC, playing volleyball, fall/spring drama productions, Improv, Best Buddies, That’s Possible, badminton, track, and flag football. Being involved has become an important part of my lifestyle and has shaped me to be who I am. I have learned many lessons and skills from participating in these activities that I can apply in my everyday life. By being in a variety of different activities, I have made long-lasting friends. These friends have influenced me to become better at the things I do every day and they have encouraged me to never give up.

After high school, I plan to go to university and study to become a nurse. Ever since I was young, I have aspired to be a nurse and I have used this goal to strive for strong grades. Outside of school, I work two part-time jobs, one being at my family’s business. My family is a huge influence in my life as they constantly support me in all my endeavours. My ambitions have led me to become a leader, not only in my school, but as well as at my work and in my community. Thank you, Twelfth Year, for this wonderful recognition

Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School

The first thing many people notice about me is that I am loud, which fits well with Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School’s “Be Loud, Be Proud, Be Respectful” motto. Whether I am laughing at my own jokes or telling a dramatic story, it is difficult not to hear me.

Born and raised in Regina by my parents (later joined by my brother,) I have found many ways to keep myself occupied. I danced for more years than I can count (eleven years—- thanks AP Calculus) and have been developing my art skills. On the topic of the arts, this year I also partook in Miller’s One Act plays, which was a brand new experience for me. Joining extra-curricular activities has allowed me to meet new groups of people and be involved in new opportunities that I am thankful for every day.

In the realm of academics, I have always enjoyed challenging myself. I have settled on two AP classes, Calculus and Computer Science. I have also taken many arts classes, such as Visual Art and Photography10. Next year I am pursing the Computer Systems Technology Program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.

One goal I focused on during my grade twelve year was being a positive light in someone’s life. I love seeing people smile and laugh so I made it a personal mission to spread positivity and love with my peers and community. Saying that, I truly hope you have an amazing day and thank you for taking the time to read about me

Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School

My name is Brooke Shumay and I am thrilled that I have had the opportunity to learn and develop my leadership skills over the last four years at Miller Comprehensive Catholic High School. I have been involved in many of my favorite activities, some of which include volleyball, the dance team, basketball, and flag football. This year I was also fortunate enough to serve as President of the SRC. The role of president of the SRC has allowed me to help organize spirit days, assemblies and other student-led activities. I have made so many memories that I will cherish forever. Joining teams and clubs and participating in different activities gave me the chance to expand my horizons, meet new people and develop new skills. At first, I was very hesitant to get involved, but by putting myself out there, I made many new friends and had great experiences. It is important to make the most out of everything and do what you love. I have always been very interested in sciences, specifically chemistry, Next year I will be majoring in chemistry at the University of Regina. After I finish with chemistry, I would like obtain my education degree so that I can become a teacher. I love to interact with people, and I have a desire to positively affect people’s lives. I am excited for my future and am eager to see what it holds. I will miss my high school years, as it was a huge part of my life, but I know I have a plan and I cannot wait to see it unfold

Archbishop MC O’Neil Catholic High School

My name is Jerico Sampang and I like to think that I’m pretty amazing. Is it true? Well, I don’t even know. But I’m always one to think optimistically. In all seriousness, I think I’ve done a lot to be proud of in my past four years of high school. It always seems to be difficult for people to admit they have done great things and I am no exception. But in my four years of being at Archbishop MC O’Neill Catholic High School, I’ve been a lead in many drama productions, a huge advocate for the arts, and have become the SRC president. But the most important thing I have done is become an LGBTQ+ role model for many students at O’Neill. It is never easy to stand up and be who you are without shame or fear. What I learned is courage is not the absence of fear, it is to be the master of fear. If you were to meet me on a regular day, I may come off as someone who is bold and brave. Truth be told, I fear for my safety every day. But what I know is that darkness does not drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hatred does not drive out hatred, only love can do that. So, I drive out that fear by living a life of love and compassion. I hope to bring these lessons into my future of being a teacher, teaching students that it is okay to be different because there is no such thing as being normal! I want to become a teacher to guide lost souls who were once like me and to see the potential in those who cannot see it themselves. Sometimes, all anyone needs is someone who believes in them, and I intend to be that person.

Archbishop M.C. O’Neill Catholic High School

My name is Jessica Gelowitz, and I am a student at Archbishop M.C. O’Neill Catholic High School.

During my time at O’Neill, I have had many new opportunities and have built many new relationships. In my Grade 11 year of high school, I joined the SRC as a Liturgical Director, which is a position that I still hold this year.

I have many different interests outside of school. For one, I dance tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, and hip-hop, and have been in dance since I was two. Furthermore, something that I am passionate about in my life is politics. I became interested in politics a few years back and since then, much of my time has been consumed by research and trying to spread my message to those around me. I have also always enjoyed traveling. My family and I enjoy camping every year during the summer, but my favourite places to travel to are Disneyland and Disney World. My faith has also always been a big part of my life and I always try to be a light to those around me.

I am not too sure of what I want to do exactly after high school, but for now I am going to attend the University of Regina in the Faculty of Business Administration and see where that takes me. I hope to do something big after high school and create something bigger than myself, whether that be a business, or getting into politics and working towards making our world a better place
