Chief Courtoreille and Council are pleased to announce a very successful and meaningful summer for our summer students. This year they included: Trenton Waquan, Christopher Abraham, Kevin Courtoreille, Dalton Courtoreille, Nathaniel Adam, Roberta Courtoreille, Shancee Courtoreille, Sara Voyageur, Nicota Marten, Kristy Whitehead, Clayton Abraham, Kaitlin Courtoreille, Robin Courtoreille, Zachary Antoine, James Piche-Cardinal, and Dana Courtoreille. They began with the First Nation on July 9th and ended on August 31st.

The students experienced work placements at Mikew Technical Services, Mikisew Communications, Chief Executive Officer's office, Elders Program, Education Program, Paspew House, MCFN Administration and Finance, Summer Fun Program, and Alberta Future Leaders program. In addition to those work placement experiences, students enrolled in a one week Class 7 Learners Driver Training; participated and assisted in the annual Government & Industry Relations Cultural Retreat; attended a youth Environmental Camp in Nordegg, Alberta; attended a Youth Leadership Retreat in the Rocky Mountains; attend a one week Mount Royal University in Calgary orientation in classroom and lived on campus; and participated in a Life Skills workshop.

Council would like to thank Albert John Courtoreille for his excellent supervisory experience with the students this summer, his coordination of all student activities and teaching healthy work habits.

We look forward to another summer of genuine learning next year and wish all our students success in the coming Fall and Winter semesters back at school!
