Livingstone School 2016 Academic & Athletic Awards Night

Christian Davis - Lundbreck's Livingstone School held their 2016 Academic & Athletic Awards Night on the evening of June 8.  This annual event celebrates the achievements of individuals at every stage of their journey through the small but tight-knit community that is Livingstone School.  Some of the recipients made multiple trips to the podium to receive their awards and the accolades of their peers.  A few were absent, otherwise engaged in character forging activities.  Others were the recipient of one well-earned award.  All were warmly applauded by the audience of educators, family members, peers, and the press.  A wide variety of student-created artworks decorated the gym.

The event began with Mrs. Krizan leading us in the singing of O Canada, followed by a brief explanation of the awards guidelines.  Awards sponsors were thanked throughout and in many cases were on hand to present the award they sponsor.  Livingstone School Administrative Assistants Mrs. Tanya Douglas and Ms. Joanne Verbaas, and Joanne Verbaas helped keep the production running smoothly, as it their usual wont.

Representatives from all generations were in attendance.

Most of the awards have been sponsored by the same individuals, service groups, or entities, for many years. The Connelly Family award for the highest Grade 12 English 30 mark was presented by Ms. Dana Connelly, who also promised that it was at Livingstone School to stay, as an annual tradition. Presenters included teachers Mrs. Karen Paton,  Mr. Alan Friesen, Mrs. Kathy Rast, Mr. Alan Friesen, Mr. Rob Tkachuk, and teacher and coach Mr. Coady MacDonald,. Also presenting were Mrs. Tracey Preston-Hucik, LHS Sports Booster Club's Ms. Candice Janzen,  Mrs. Naomi Schweb, Mrs. Bonnie Kaack, Ms. Joanne Verbaas, and Mrs. Sharon Halibert.  Also Ms. Janet Elder, Duane and Lynne DeCock, Ms. Leisl Leishman, Mr. Nolan Pharis, Mr. Everett Nowlin, Mr. Paul Erickson, Ms. Dawn Heerschap, Ms. Anne Molnar, Livingstone School Administrators Mr. Chad Jensen and Mrs. Mary Krizan, and numerous volunteers (including many parents). Village of Cowley Mayor Mr. Garry Hackler presented again and gave a short speech. who still has a reserved parking spot in the Livingstone lot, also presented. Hackler is a Livingstone graduate and former teacher and administrator there. He still keeps his hand in, and as a side note has one of the nicest gardens in the area. And a good parking spot. Pillars of Livingstone's family, all of them. Lots of people fill multiple roles.  I know I left some out and left some in, and it should be known that they all contribute to Livingstone's evident success as the little school that can.  Champions in many fields are produced here, free thinkers all. Scientists, artists,  athletes, dramatists, linguists, rodeo stars, mathematicians, musicians, language arts, etc.  Eyes on the stars.  Strength in community really works around here.  They should do a study.

Enough of that, on with the show.
