Winston Knoll Collegiate

Hi. My name is Travis Shane Wright, and I am currently in Grade 12 and graduating this year from Winston Knoll Collegiate. I was born in North Battleford and lived in many places early in my life. I am a young Indigenous man, and I plan on moving to Saskatoon in late August to attend Saskatchewan Polytechnic for Culinary Arts.

I have been involved with cadets for many years, and I am close to completing the program but will end by participating in cadet camp over the summer for seven weeks. I am very active in my school’s Indigenous events and help spread a positive image of Aboriginal people and culture. I am also proud to be part of the LGBTQ2S+ community as I am openly gay and a former member of Knoll’s GSA/QSA group, working towards creating safe places for others in my school.

I am happy to have been picked for this award and look forward to what life has to bring me in the future!
