“SHS taught me the im­por­tance of a strong work ethic and be­ing a team player.”

How does it feel to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian? It's a tremen­dous hon­our to be awarded vale­dic­to­rian at SHS. It has been a goal I have been work­ing to­ward as long as I can re­mem­ber as I have been at the school since JK. How do you think The Ster­ling Hall School (SHS) has pre­pared you for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? SHS has taught me valu­able char­ac­ter strengths that have pre­pared me for life as a high school stu­dent. Did you have a teacher who in­spired you? Many teach­ers in­spired me. How­ever, I'd like to give a spe­cial shout out to Mr. Tyler Meakin who has been my men­tor, role model and friend since SK. What’s your best mem­ory of the school? My best mem­ory was a magic show my dad did for my SK class in the win­ter of 2009. We chopped up my teacher's tie and my dad some­how re­stored it - good as new! What was your big­gest ac­com­plish­ment to date? Not in­clud­ing be­ing se­lected as vale­dic­to­rian, I won the in­ter­nal pub­lic speak­ing com­pe­ti­tion. I then went on to win the ex­ter­nal com­pe­ti­tion against eight other pri­vate schools in the GTA.
