July 4, 2006 - The St. James Catholic School Drummers welcomed guest speaker Sharon Firth in traditional native fashion with an Honour Song at the school prior to her presentation to the student body. Sharon was a member of Canada's national cross-country ski team for an unprecedented 17 consecutive years, competing on the World Cup circuit and in four winter Olympic Games. In her presentation at both St. James and St. David Catholic Schools Ms. Firth delivered a powerful message to all students. She inspires all students to believe in their dreams and work hard to achieve them.
