Hailey is a 4th year Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) student, majoring in Exercise and Sport Studies. She has proven her commitment to academic excellence by being named to the CIS Academic All-Canadians and Huskie All-Academic First Team while playing with the women’s hockey team.
Hailey's community spirit is equally commendable and demonstrated by her involvement with the Aboriginal Track and Field Championships. This growing annual event is an opportunity for Aboriginal people of all ages and abilities to participate in a sport competitively, something Hailey recognizes may not be the case for many Aboriginal youth and young adults.
Her goal is to continue serving the needs of the Aboriginal population here in her home community of Saskatoon through the health region as a member of the Representative Workforce: “The idea behind this workforce is to increase [the health region’s] ability to understand and service the needs of all clients, however culturally diverse they are. I like the fact that the health region is making a conscious effort to employ people of Aboriginal descent to make sure they are providing the best care possible to the people who make up a large portion of our population.”
Hailey’s outstanding academic success while supporting initiatives that promote healthy, active living in the Aboriginal community make her a truly deserving recipient of this honour and we are so pleased to celebrate her achievements.
