MIDALE — Reagan Martin, a recent graduate of the Midale Central School, has received a $4,000 Youth Leadership Award from Conexus Credit Union.

He was one of six students from around the province to receive the scholarship.

According to information on the Conexus Credit Union website, Martin demonstrated leadership by being an active volunteer for many community events and causes, such as helping with the Midale rodeo and events at Midale's Harry O Memorial Arena; by volunteering as a mentor for children’s hockey; and by being an active member in the Cymri 4-H Beef Club, through which he mentored younger members.

“I take huge pride in the community I was raised in and look forward to spending many years to come, helping our little community thrive,” he said.

In applying for this leadership award, his nominators said, “Reagan consistently demonstrates an impressive work ethic, dedication  and a positive attitude. When Reagan is around, he can make a bad day good and a good day better.”

He will be attending Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Saskatoon campus in their welding program, and after completing the course, his goal is to have a career in that field in some form, which may include pipeline, mining or custom welding. 

These awards are allocated to graduating high school students from across the province who are making a positive impact in their communities through their leadership and volunteerism.
