I was honored to be asked to covert the presentation event for the Classroom Champions program here in Drayton Valley. http://www.classroomchampions.org/
I learned so many great things about the program that 3 of our local classroom were able to participate in. Penn West was the sponsor of the local Program and the teachers and students had a great time interacting with the Olympian that was assigned to their classroom Brittany Webster Canadian Olympic Cross-Country Skier. Check out her page at http://www.brittanywebster.net/#!who-i-am/c139r
Although Brittany was unable to attend the event she had a great connection with the student s and teachers that she interacted with through the program. The students and teachers were so enthusiastic about their connection with Brittany and it was very apparent during the presentation that this program made a huge impact of the students that participated.
In Brittany’s absents CEO and Olympic Gold medalist Steve Mesler was there to enlighten and share the story of the program with parents and fellow community members. Steve has a great passion for this program and its benefits to the kids; he is full of energy and a great role model as well. He shared with the community about this triumphs and tribulations of training for the Olympics going from track to Bobsled and kept the students engaged. Passing his Gold medal around and being photographed with the participants after and during the event showed the true emotions and impacts of the program.
