Alexandra Hickey, a Grade 12 student at Marymount Academy and President of the school's Student Council reviews a public relations column on the 'Significance of Advent' with Zandra Zubac, Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. Alex was invited to the Board's weekly marketing meeting as part of the 'YouthThink, Switch Shoes' initiative.

December 6, 2005 - Alexandra Hickey, a Grade 12 student at Marymount Academy and President of the school's Student Council recently shadowed SCDSB Director Zanda Zubac as part of the 'YouthThink Switch Shoes' program. 'YouthThink' is a unique educational campaign that seeks to raise awareness and dialogue among adults and youth about the inclusion of young people in the community of Greater Sudbury. The project is part of the Social Planning Council of Sudbury's Closing the Distant initiative.

As a guest at SCDSB's weekly marketing meeting, Alex shared her views and interpretations of a number of media topics which included the Annual Director's Report, radio and television commercials, print ads, and promotional materials for the print media. "It was a genuine pleasure to have Alexandra take part in our marketing meeting," stated Zandra Zubac. "Alex brought keen insight and a new and interesting perspective to many media and promotional issues that are unique to youth and students in our schools."

Zandra Zubac, "shadowed" Alexandra at Marymount Academy earlier this month by taking part in a Marymount Student Council Executive meeting and accompanying Alexandra to Ida Sauve's Dance studio for Alexandra's dance lessons.
