R.E. Mountain Secondary’s Sumara Stroshein-Blagborne is the 2015 recipient of the Pete Swensson Outstanding Community Youth Award. The award is given to a Langley secondary school student in recognition of their athletic, scholastic and community efforts.
At some schools, it is easy to see which students stand out as leaders.But that is not the case with Sumara Stroshein-Blagborne. There is no denying that the 17-year-old is a leader at R.E. Mountain Secondary School, but for those not familiar with her, it would be hard to know just how much she does.“She is quiet, she is unassuming, she is humble,” said Cora Pickering, a counsellor at the school. “You would never know she is doing all this stuff. She is not someone to pat herself on her shoulders.
“Her leadership, organizational and communication skills enable her to successfully juggle her many activities. Very reflective, very principled, and she is highly respected by absolutely everyone.” “She is a workhorse, but she is also a quiet leader. She just gets things done,” Pickering added. And her ability to get things done has resulted in Stroshein-Blagborne winning the 2015 Pete Swensson Outstanding Community Youth Award. Stroshein-Blagborne was one of eight nominees for the award which is given to a Langley secondary student in recognition of their athletic, scholastic and community efforts.
