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.
