High school student wins a Schulich Leader Scholarship worth $80,000

Denaisha Kraft, a Grade 12 student from St. Joseph High School has been granted a Schulich Leader Scholarship, Creating the Next Generation of Technology Innovators, from the University of Victoria. The scholarship is in the amount of $80,000.

This is Canada’s most coveted undergraduate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) scholarship. Kraft won in the science and math category.

“I never would have imagined that I would win this scholarship. It is truly life-changing. I honestly can’t thank my teachers enough for everything they have done. They have always been so supportive, and they are always willing to provide assistance. They have undeniably inspired me to work towards my goals. St. Joseph High School has given me so many opportunities to grow as an individual, and the school does an amazing job of creating an inclusive environment to grow in both athletics and academics. My parents have motivated me throughout my entire life; none of this would be possible without their constant support. They have allowed me to pursue my interests and work towards my goals, and I can’t thank them enough. I have also been fortunate to grow up alongside my twin sister, Jessica, and she has always been there to provide constant encouragement. Winning this scholarship gives me the ability to focus on my interests without having to worry about any financial limitations. I’m excited to connect with other like-minded individuals at the University of Victoria who share similar interests and passions, and I can’t wait to get involved with the learning opportunities that the University of Victoria has to offer. I couldn’t be more excited to start the next part of my journey,” said Denaisha Kraft, Grade 12 student at St. Joseph High School.

“Denaisha is a remarkable member of our school community. Not only is she a strong academic student, Denaisha is also a gifted athlete who is part of our varsity volleyball and badminton teams. As a Schulich Leader Scholarship recipient, Denaisha is humble and passionate for learning, which is an element essential for mentorship to be effective. Denaisha has a bright future ahead of her and we couldn’t be more pleased for her and her family,” said Principal Graeme Daniel at St. Joseph High School.

“Denaisha is one of the top female students I have ever taught. She is modest and genuine but always seeks to understand more. Denaisha is a great ambassador academically and athletically,” said Sherry Schulzke, a retired teacher from St. Joseph High School.

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE ON HOW TO GAIN INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS FAST

Published on

Instagram has quickly evolved from its original perception as a friendly app for youngsters to a real content promoting, sale, device management, and community building tool for individuals and brands. It’s one of the most popular long-distance social networking places in the world, with more than 200 million active monthly users exchanging 60 million pictures and 1.6 billion interests every day. If your Instagram influence isn’t as strong as you believe, now could be a good time to work out how to improve your strategies for having real engagement and buy Instagram followers. The larger your crowd grows, the more opportunities you’ll have to attract customers and provide them with exclusive experiences. Begin developing your identity in the right direction with these Instagram tips for increasing followers. 

  • Make a unique hashtag. 

A dedicated, heritage, or marked hashtag allows you to essentially create an array of your best content. When a prospective follower finds you from another extremely concentrated on tag, they will undoubtedly follow you and see your top posts. You should also try having an unique tag for all of your Instagram marketing activities. This is sometimes a superior option because it often feels less constrained than using anything more explicit to your company, for example, your organization name. As a result, campaign hashtags are often used by Instagram followers, which attracts the attention of their groups. If they share your interests, they will start following you as well. 

  • Cross-promote your special hashtag. 

It’s great that you created a hashtag for your organization, but who knows who would use it to spread content about you? Make sure it’s in your profile but take the game off and have it imprinted on your records, ads, shop signs, and other relevant times. If you’re on the radio or TV, tell people to use your hashtag. Incorporate online and offline missions by ensuring it’s reported on the other media accounts, website, and email impacts. Don’t just assume that people would find it.

  • Use hashtags that are exclusive to the field. 

You need followers who are enthusiastic about what you do and hold. Using words that are not exclusive to the field can result in a small number of followers. As a result, you can use hashtags in your posts that your target audience can specifically search for. The more explicit you are, the more interested people you will get, and the more often they will become devout followers. Furthermore, using more specific brands reduces the number of competitors vying for the followers of related individuals you’re interested in. As a result, the data would be easier to find and, as a result, easier to track.

  • Try not to be too monotonous. 

When it comes to Instagram caption ideas, you can look beyond the single term, straightforward hashtags. Of course, you can use those as well, but mix it up and use hashtags to share a portion of your post. Be funny, surprising, or silly – just don’t be BORING. WeWork, a community-oriented workspace organization, excels at this, and they add a fantastic mix of Instagram material as well.

  • Get to know the surroundings. 

By going to the hunt page and selecting the Places tab, you can see what’s going on in a specific territory (say, your area, a city you’re working on promotions, or even an event in a specific area). Then, type for the sake of the location to see all geotagged posts for that location.

  • Begin the discussion 

Individuals are continuing to use social media platforms as a point of touch with brands, regardless of whether it is for spontaneous queries and discussion, real customer service inquiries, or acclaim for their top brands and products. Furthermore, you should be powerful and accessible on Instagram for your followers. Attempt to respond to as many questions or comments as possible, as it could be the difference between gaining another consumer, follower, or strengthening your interaction with your viewer. It is critical to obtain the care and consistency required to convert a visitor to your profile into an adherent.

  • Thank your Instagram followers. 

To summaries, when you please your Instagram followers, you see the outcome in community growth. We’ve given you a lot of ideas for conceptualizing and planning content, so make them a habit that feels authentic to your picture personality. As a result, avoid being needy, deal-driven, or standardized.

  • Create your own Instagram appearance. 

It’s human nature to want to blend in, but on Instagram, you need to stand out. Frooti, an Indian refreshment company, has developed an especially remarkable visual substance theme, which is immediately noticeable if a customer sees a Frooti message in their newsfeed.

CONCLUSION

For certain information, this entails sprinkling in messages that are genuinely meant to bring a smile to followers’ faces and build professional relationships. Remember to provide content to your followers as if they had been friends on your own feed: this may include uploading videos, rousing content, or simply re-sharing interesting photos or fine art (all properly attributed, of course) that will provide your followers a mental break during the day.

RDC awards Danny Rode with Honorary Degree – Brittany van Vlaanderen earns Governor General’s Academic Medal

Published on

RDC celebrates graduates and award recipients from class of 2021 Red Deer, June 3, 2021 – On June 4, 2021, Red Deer College will celebrate the graduates from its

57th Convocation through a virtual ceremony.

“Convocation is always such an important and emotional time, and that is especially true this year,” says Dr. Peter Nunoda, President. “These graduates made the choice to participate and to complete their education, despite formidable odds and circumstances that were undoubtedly different than they had envisioned. By rising to the challenge and earning their credential, each of these graduates has shown incredible resiliency and dedication, and I hope they are truly proud of all they have achieved.”

As part of the virtual ceremony for Convocation 2021, RDC is announcing two special award recipients. Brittany van Vlaanderen is receiving the Governor General’s Academic Medal (Collegiate Bronze Level) for her academic excellence. Brittany graduated with a Social Work diploma, and she earned a GPA of 4.0 and four grades of A+ in the final year of her program.

RDC is continuing an important tradition this year, with the granting of an Honorary Degree to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of social, cultural or economic development in a way that has had significant impact on RDC, central Alberta and beyond. Danny Rode is the seventh recipient of the Honorary Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies Degree in recognition of his 50-year career as a sports journalist, where he has shown astounding commitment to RDC Athletics and our student-athletes, helping to place RDC on the map as one of the best colleges in Canada.

“Recognizing special award recipients is always a meaningful part of Convocation celebrations, and I would like to personally congratulate both of these individuals,” says Nunoda. “Brittany van Vlaanderen has demonstrated excellence and success of the highest level in her program, which is a tremendous way to transition to the next phase of her life and career.”

“Danny Rode, our Honorary Degree recipient, has spent five decades sharing the stories of our student-athletes, coaches and teams. He has earned the reputation as someone who has never missed a home game – in 50 years – which is unheard of, and speaks volumes to his unparalleled dedication to athletics and this community.”

This Convocation represents another special milestone for the College, as the 1,619 graduates from 2021 represent the final class from Red Deer College, before it transitions to exciting future as Red Deer Polytechnic.

“There is no question that this Convocation is special on several levels,” Nunoda says. “I truly wish that we could gather this year and that I could shake the hands of each and every graduate, so I could tell them how proud I am. Given the circumstances, we have put in every effort to ensure graduates feel our pride and a sense of community through the virtual ceremony and our social media celebration. The class of 2021 represents a milestone in the history of our institution, and they now transition to being an essential part of our vibrant group of alumni.”

The virtual ceremony for RDC’s 57th Convocation, as well as a virtual ceremony celebrating the Class of 2020, are each available at rdc.ab.ca/convocation. The College will be celebrating graduates on our social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) throughout the early part of June 2021.
