Last night’s Flin Flon School Board meeting started off with a presentation of a cheque and certificate for grade 12 Hapnot student Nicole Storey. The Student Citizenship Certificate of Merit is awarded through the Manitoba School Board Association in recognition of exemplary citizenship in the school and community. Nicole is the president of the safe grad committee, she is a member of the student council, was part of the trip to Nicaragua and is a huge part of fundraising efforts at the school. Nicole shared her experience in Nicaragua with the board and said the trip was an amazing eye opener and would readily return. She said many local businesses contributed to fundraising efforts highlighted the spaghetti night at Chicken Chef where upwards of 25 hundred dollars was raised. She says she was surprised to get the nomination for the region and even though she didn’t win she was pleased her efforts were recognized.
