Some young students across Saskatchewan and southern Alberta have a chance to meet a popular Canadian figure.
A teacher at Assiniboia Park Elementary in Weyburn, Kelsey Gonczy. says this unique program is giving kids a chance to be inspired.
“Classroom Champions connects students in the classroom with either an Olympian, a Paralympian or a world class athlete for an entire year.”
Gonczy says they’re paired with Paralympian snowboard medalist Michelle Salt, someone Gonczy says will be great to learn from about overcoming adversity.
