From Vanderhoof, B.C., Sydney is a graduate of Nechako Valley Secondary School and is in her first year of the Bachelor of Education program. On court, Sydney is a tenacious defender, often tasked with guarding the opponent’s better offensive players. With the ball, Sydney is as aggressive as they come. Always looking to push the ball and play fast. These assets were on full display this past weekend as Syd was named Player Of the Game, with 12 points and 10 rebounds, as the Wolves earned their first win of the season!

The Future of Energy Sources

Hey GPRC, check out this awesome submission by GPRC Student, Alexis Fallon based on her instructors encouragement.

Business Administration Instructor, Teresa Wouters encourages her students to let their voices be heard, especially when it comes to their assignments.

“Alexis Fallon is a friendly and committed student. She works well with others and did very well with her assignments!

When students give me good essays, I encourage them to publish them through the college’s Waggle magazine or another source. I am so excited that this is what Alexis is doing.

I also encourage students to publish their essays when they have a topic that could be of interest to others. I do this to let students realize that they have opportunities to share their opinions and writing beyond a classroom setting. I hope that, by doing so, they will be inspired to carry on with publishing in academic journals or other sources,” says Wouters.
