Dear sponsors Nisku & Leduc Rotary Club
 
I greet you with great pleasure, hoping that you are very well and thanking you with all my heart for the scholarship you are giving me to continue my studies.
 
This month has been one of the best I have had, my internship officially began, and I am really very happy, from the first day it has been learning, every day I know something new. It is something wonderful how what I once read in a book chapter can be seen in real life, and in the same way, as all research studies have managed to improve the treatments for most diseases.
 
These two months I will be in the emergency department, I have learned to do many things, such as taking blood gases (arterial blood samples), taking electrocardiograms, doing dressings, sutures, splinting, placing urinary and nasogastric tubes, presenting patients to doctors in the visiting pass, and even to make medical notes for patients. I really like that service, it is very tiring and we hardly have breaks, but it has taught me many things and every day I try to make the most of it.
 
Today they gave me the first dose of the vaccine, the cases of covid in Colima have increased, and if I am concerned, but I know that following the correct protection measures the risks decrease considerably, so I will not lower my guard to protect myself. me and my family.
 
Everyone in my family has been in very good health, my mother and father are already vaccinated, they have not yet vaccinated the population under 30 years of age, so my siblings are still missing, I got the vaccine before because I belonged to the workers' sector. Of the health; I hope that soon my brothers will also receive it.
 
Well I say goodbye to you sending my best wishes, accompanied by a big hug and a cordial greeting; thanking you once again for the great support you have given me. THANKS A LOT!
 
Sincerely,
 
ALONDRA MARLEN DE JESÚS ASCENCIO
“Get ‘er done!” is an adage that has become synonymous with Clarence Shields.  Clarence’s legacy is comprised of his family business ventures, his community service endeavours and his commitment to his family.
 
Clarence has committed time and support to many community service projects including being a charter and past member of the Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc.  A sample of his community involvement includes founder of the Tree of Hope Charitable Society and the Leduc Gaming Operators Association which have donated $250,000 and $800,000 respectively to local service groups and charities.  Clarence is a major sponsor of the Leduc Grain Elevator Society.  His business, Blackjacks Roadhouse, serves as a staging area and annually hosts numerous charity events.  Once of Clarence’s proudest events is the Shields Annual Free Christmas Dinner serving dinner to 600 plus people which his family has been doing for 44 years in Fort McMurray and then in Nisku.
 
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Alberta, Clarence returned to Fort McMurray and joins his father, Jack, in creating SML Industries along with his brothers, John and Jim.  SML ventures included an A&W Drive-in, Smitty’s Family Restaurant, Dairy Queen and 5 other independent restaurant, bar and nightclub facilities located in Fort McMurray.  SML also acquired Redwood Ready Mix concrete and gravel pits in Fort McMurray, Barrhead and Westlock as well as numerous commercial and warehouse and retail spaces.
