Darren Rae from Deer Lake First Nation has been selected as the KiHS student of the year for his academic successes in all his high school courses. Darren was recognized for having the Best Average in at least 6 credits, highest academic achievement in Science, Native Studies and Language, and Mathematics. He also was selected for making the "best academic effort" in his community KiHS classroom.
The Awards of Excellence page congratulates all the participating KiHS students. Everyone who signs up for KiHS courses are winners because they are able to develop new and important academic, technical and social skills. Being able to remain in their home communities with their families and friends, even for an extra year or two provides an important support for everyone, especially the community. Those KiHS students who are successful in completing high school credits from their home community are proving that they can be successful in any learning environment.
