WEYBURN — Reagan Martin, a graduate of 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 award.

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.

Martin demonstrated leadership by being an active volunteer for many community events and causes, such as helping run the Midale rodeo, and events at the Midale Rink; by volunteering as a mentor for children’s hockey; and was 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 Saskatoon’s Polytechnic campus enrolled in their welding program, and after completing the course his goal is to go out into the welding field in some form which may include, pipeline welding, welding in the mines, and/or custom welding.
