Carter Davey - Student Trustee

Carter Davey, MSS

  I am currently enrolled at MSS as a grade 10 student. I have been on the honor roll every year except for grade 8. This year I'm am currently on the principal's list. My roles at this school include sports, leadership activities which includes hosting assemblies with my fellow class mates , and I just received the role of student trustee for our school.

Earlier this year I was on the MSS cross country team, as well as the track and field team. Outside of school I enjoy going to the gym, drumming, along  with computer activities. I very much enjoy volunteering in and out side of school. Last Christmas I took part in a 2 day long volunteering activity at the Country Music Hall of Fame. I also help out with the Kids Triathlon 2 years in a row here in Merritt. I am currently employed as a part time worker at the Merritt Extra Food's establishment which is fantastic work experience.

After I graduate from high school i plan on taking a year off to further explore the world. After that I will attend at a university for either an engineering, or computer arts/programming degree. Although I am very intrigued by Science so who knows what I will be interested in by that time.

I am currently enrolled at PSS as a grade 11 student. I have been on the honor roll every year since grade 8.

My roles at the school involve a range of sports, the V.P of communications for our student council and I am an active student trustee for our school. I currently play on the senior basketball team and as an extracurricular activity I play for the towns midget hockey team. For cultural activities, I am enrolled in photography and also play the piano in my spare time. Over the summer of 2016 I spent time designing and building a swing made completely out of a wood base and hockey sticks with my father. I have volunteered at a variety of places, including helping with the annual pancake breakfast, and helping with the Weyerhaeuser Christmas party. I maintain my referee’s permit to allow me to assist at referring levels from tykes to midget whether it's local or out of town games. I also have a part time job as a dishwasher at Heartland.

After high school I plan to go to either UBC or UVIC for an undergraduate in nursing and then applying to a law school.
