Congratulations to our December Student of the Month, Jayda Lauzon from FKSS! Shown here receiving her $100 cheque and certificate from our Club President Gregg Perry. Her dedication to helping her fellow students thrive, plus striving for excellence in rowing and other pursuits, have not gone unnoticed!! Well done Jayda! 🌟💞

“It’s just something I’m passionate about,” she says. “I love meeting new people and being able to be there for them, and that’s the main thing about peer counselling.”

Lauzon’s sincerity toward her fellow students is obvious to Rowan.

“She cares about their mental health,” the principal says.

As the Student of the Month, Lauzon received $100 from the Rotary Club of Duncan and a certificate sponsored by PrintCraft. Program coordinator Kim Barnard pointed out that Lauzon appears to be a natural facilitator, which is a key value in Rotary.
