September’s Theme is Courage: Having the strength to do what is right even when it is not popular. Speaking up for yourself and others.

Alyshia Alkerton has been selected as the Female CRUSADER CHARACTER for the MONTH OF SEPTEMBER. Alyshia has stepped up as a Manager and Student Coach for the Varsity Co-ed Cross-Country Team. This is during a time she has not been able to compete and has much shown enthusiasm for the team and courage to train lightly while she heals from her injury. Best of luck in your recovery Alyshia!

Emily Dikdan has been selected as the Female CRUSADER CHARACTER for the MONTH OF SEPTEMBER. Emily is a Grade 9 student who not only plays on the Senior Girls Basketball Team, but is also a starter and has a major impact on the team’s success. She is new to Eastern Ontario and has adjusted extremely well to life here at St. Mary CHS. Being the true “Rookie” of the team it takes COURAGE every day to participate and contribute being 3 years younger than some players on the squad. Emily is always receptive to constructive criticism and is a quiet leader who speaks up for herself and her teammates in times of need. We are all very fortunate to have her a part of our Crusader family!
