Af­ter high school, Deirdra Tin­dale (Col­lege Notre-Dame, Sud­bury, 2000) en­rolled in po­lit­i­cal sci­ence at Lau­ren­tian Univer­sity, where she par­tic­i­pated in an ex­change pro­gram with the Univer­sity of Lim­er­ick, in Ire­land, and pub­lished her first re­search pa­per. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing her univer­sity de­gree in 2004, Deirdra be­came the only Cana­dian se­lected to par­tic­i­pate in a EuroAmer­i­can ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram in Aus­tria. She sub­se­quently did a mas­ter’s de­gree at Univer­site Laval. Dur­ing her stud­ies at that in­sti­tu­tion, Deirdra won the tele­vised “Canada’s Next Great Prime Min­is­ter” com­pe­ti­tion, which came with a $50,000 schol­ar­ship and an in­tern­ship, on the ba­sis of which she was hired as Press Sec­re­tary by the gov­ern­ment of Stephen Harper. Her work there ranged over a wide va­ri­ety of dossiers, in­clud­ing First Na­tions, Metis and Inuit peo­ples. Deirdra is presently em­ployed by the BHP Bil­li­ton min­ing cor­po­ra­tion, trav­el­ling in the United King­dom, Liberia, Guinea and Aus­tralia. She re­cently won the Gen­der Di­ver­sity Cham­pion in New South Wales Min­ing Award for her ef­forts at pro­mot­ing gen­der di­ver­sity in the min­ing in­dus­try.

Re­mem­ber­ing as a cam­pus — K to 12 stu­dents at Holy Cross and St. Bene­dict joined to­gether to hon­our those who served in war. It was a col­lab­o­ra­tion with one goal: to help stu­dents re­mem­ber au­then­ti­cally. Kinder­garten to Grade 6 stu­dents at Holy Cross pro­vided the choir, the art work and the lay­ing of one wreath. St. Bene­dict 7-12 stu­dents pro­vided two more wreaths along with the poignant read­ings. Cadets who at­tend the high school also as­sisted with the play­ing of the bag­pipes and the for­mal­ity of the ser­vice, along with two rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Cana­dian Army. The ser­vice was or­ches­trated by Chap­laincy Lead Rob Pap­pin. Pic­tured: three stu­dents at St. Bene­dict — Zachary Beauchamp (left), Ethan Soucy and Koby Kai Kutchaw — as­sist with the ser­vice held in the St. Bene­dict gym Fri­day.
