Students selected for SHAD program
Mallory Spencer and Abby Brenton excited to take part in unique experience
Mallory Spencer and Abby Brenton are looking forward to a unique opportunity this summer.
The pair, both Grade 10 students at Marystown Central High School, have been selected for the SHAD program.
Abby and Malory said they were excited to be selected for the program.
“It felt amazing,” Abby said. “First when I submitted my application I was not confident, thinking that I wasn’t going to get in, (so) when I got word back that I got in it felt so good—I felt really proud of the work that I put in.” maybe it will be a future career option,” she said.
Both young women agree the program will be a valuable networking opportunity.
Mallory is looking forward to doing activities she didn’t think would be a part of the program, such as outdoor camping and indoor rock climbing.
“I never really expected that to be part of this program, that alongside of all the learning experiences it’s going to be amazing.”
