Seven Grade 8 classes converged to hear Edmonton Eskimo speaker Nate Coehoorn talk during the Heroes Youth event.

Heroes Youth Program At Junior High

Gateway Family Church, Leduc FCSS, Boston Pizza and No Frills sponsor event for Junior High Students

Gifts, Abilities and a Desire to Succeed is the recurring theme in the Heroes program, now in it’s fifth year at Ecole Leduc Junior High School. Focusing on students strengths and how they can use their gifts and abilities to make a positive change in themselves and others is the focus of the program that is part of the grade 8 health curriculum.

Heroes Facilitators Paul Drader of Gateway Family Church, Charlene Schatz of Chara Life Coaching (also a recipient of a Leduc Citizens Of Distinction Award for community spirit), and Heather Graham form Leduc FCSS collaborated to bring all seven grade 8 classes together for a Heroes Day assembly where selected students were honoured with awards for exemplifying the principles they had been taught throughout the program.

Edmonton Eskimo Wide Receiver Nate Coehoorn was the guest speaker who shared his story which coincided with much of what is covered in the Heroes Program. He shared about lessons he learned the hard way with regards to his friend choices and how a good attitude is a huge part of success. He then answered questions from the students and signed autographs. Students really enjoyed the assembly, especially the free pizza provided by Leduc Boston Pizza. Other sponsors included Gateway Family Church, Leduc FCSS and No Frills.
