LISA CROWSHOE – GAZETTE CONTRIBUTOR
F.P. Walshe school students participated May 8 in the INDSPIRE Indigenous Youth Career Conference in Calgary sponsored by the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation.
The students took part in workshops featuring schools such as DeVry School of Technology, University of Calgary and Canadian Broadcasting Colleges as well as looking at trade show exhibits from colleges and universities from across Western Canada and many financial institutions and oil companies.
The students were “INDSPIRED” by entertainers Red Power and Dallas Arcand.
Along the way, students had their “passports” stamped when attending sessions and participating in discussion with trade show exhibitors.
About 300 students participated from southern British Columbia, western Saskatchewan, and from across Alberta.
The F.P. Walshe school students were entered in a draw from all the passports and three students won laptop computers, computer software, and laptop backpacks. Winners were: Kayla Pard, Jon Call David, and Cole Black Water.
Extra excitement surrounds two students as they graduate from F.P. Walshe school to attend post-secondary schools: Jon Call David at the University of Alberta and Cole Black Water at Lethbridge College.
