My name is Maren Rogers, and my involvement within my school and community has been an important part of who I am for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I moved a lot because of my dad’s career, and I became accustomed to the feeling of being the new kid and all the confusion that came with it. This experience sparked my desire to make sure that every new kid who came after me wouldn’t have to feel the uncertainty about their place like I did.
When the opportunity arose to become a member of the Student Leadership Council at Campbell Collegiate, I knew right away that it was something that I wanted to do, and I’ve been lucky enough to be a member of the SLC for the past four years. The ability to be a part of the decision making that can improve others’ high school experiences has not only allowed me to prove myself as a leader but also to come out of my own shell and boost my own confidence.
Another passion area of mine is my involvement with our school’s Best Buddies program. For the past four years, I have been able to see the immense kindness that this program promotes, and I look forward to lunches with my buddy every month.
Outside of my extracurricular activities, I am very focused on my academics—taking AP English, earning my place on honour roll each year, and always striving to improve my own ability to learn in all of my classes. I also work as a lifeguard/swim instructor and love working with children through teaching them the important skill of swimming.
I look forward to what the future will hold for me as I continue my education at the University of Regina this fall!
