Luther College High School

Hi, I’m Avery Lightfoot and I am proud to be graduating from Luther this year! At the beginning of Grade 9 I was so overwhelmed with the amount of activities I could be involved in; I didn’t know where to start. So, I did everything; choir, social events, service clubs, volleyball and softball. However, I wanted to do something more meaningful. I set some personal goals to take on a leadership role within my school community. I joined the SRC as secretary, headed committees to plan school events and became a co-leader of Social Advocacy club. My primary goal was to plan events that were inclusive to the entire student body. Sports are a big part of my identity. I played volleyball with school from grade 6-12, enjoying every moment of it. But my true passion lies in Softball. I have played since I was 6 years old and cannot get enough of it. I currently play for the RMSL 19URiot and look forward to the tryouts with the U of R Cougars this summer. My passion for education, sports and inclusivity are driving me to a Bachelor’s in Health Science at the U of R, to start me on my path to a career in sports program development at a provincial level
