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.
