Central Butte Students Shine
The grade 11 and 12 Entrepreneur 30 class had the honor of attending the Saskatchewan Junior Achievement Hall of Fame Awards Night in Regina on Thursday, June 4. Celeste Wilson had the honor to emcee an evening that celebrated our entrepreneurial spirit. These young entrepreneurs should be commended on their commitment, spirit, passion and dedication to making their companies grow. Their collective, creative effort made this Junior Achievement experience one they will always remember.
Dressed in their finest, they stood up to accept several awards that recognized their successes as owners of the companies, Country Creations and Makin’ Dough. We were pleased to see our names nominated in many categories. The award recipients were honoured and proud to represent Central Butte School.
Nolan Drake won the Environmental, Health and Safety Award. He played a significant role in the development, implementation, monitoring and ongoing improvement of a healthy and safe working environment for Makin’ Dough.
Kayla McInnis and Celeste Wilson both exhibited the qualities of an exceptional leader, demonstrating competence and confidence, mentoring team members, and were outstanding company ambassadors. These qualities graced them with the President of the Year Award.
Kayla McInnis won the Professional Leadership Award. She demonstrated outstanding leadership not only in the company but also in the Junior Achievement Program as a whole.
Celeste Wilson was awarded Achiever of the Year. Celeste showed outstanding dedication and commitment to the JA Company Program throughout the year. She showed exceptional leadership and perseverence as well as a willingness to help follow Achievers.
Kayla and Celeste will represent Saskatchewan and Canada at the annual Next Generation Leaders Forum – an international conference hosted by Junior Achievement of Canada. They will travel to Peterborough, Ontario August 10-14. The Next Generation Leaders experience is a unique blend of personal growth, practical experience and confidence building. Delegates face real business challenges and develop strategies in collaboration with their global peers, university faculty and industry volunteers.
