Six members of the Student Leadership Council at Kindersley Composite School attended the Saskatchewan Student Leadership conference held in Tisdale.

The annual event was held Sept. 20 to 22 with more than 700 students, plus advisers, attending from across the province.

Students attending from KCS were Kali Sproule, Courtney McKenzie, Blair Gilmour, Brianna McBride, Jillian McArthur and Shayla Olafson. Going with them was SLC adviser Karen Barrows.

This year’s conference was based on a super hero theme and it was all about being your hero, reaching beyond all limits and stepping out of your comfort zone.

This year’s guest speakers featured Tyler Haden, an East Coast speaker who the KCS students reported as saying that energy flows where attention goes and enthusiasm is caught, not taught.

Greg Johnson, the Tornado Hunter, also spoke. He said when he first started chasing tornadoes, people said he was crazy. But his dream, which he shared with the students, was not to let people dissuade you from following your dream.

Speaker Ian Tyson encouraged the leaders that their job is to keep people safe when they come to school and make sure everyone feels a part of the school, and help them feel that they can come and be safe.

Alvin Law said misery is a choice. It’s all a perspective.
