The Bold Eagle presentation was a great success and sparked student’s interest. It is a unique summer employment program that combines Aboriginal culture and teachings with military training. Bold Eagle is a challenging yet rewarding opportunity that helps to develop valuable skills such as self-confidence, self-discipline, teamwork, time management, respect and fitness to list but a few. It was wonderful seeing such a great turn out from our NPSS student community, as well as the Peace River community. ~ M. Conway

Residential Construction students are headed to Mexico this weekend to build a new home for a needy family.
Liam Mavin, Ben Jackson, Taylor Rowe, and Josh Stones depart Saturday with instructor Richard Koop for a week-long humanitarian aid experience. They’ll build a new, two bedroom home on a concrete slab that will have been poured by the time they arrive. The building materials have been sponsored by several Fort St. John businesses. For more information, visit Alaska Highway News.
