Horton In the News –
Horton members of the Wolfville Tritons Swim team Nicolaas Groenveld and Ava Vial achieved personal bests at a recent meet. This bodes well for them as they work to be part of the team representing Nova Scotia at the Canada Games to be held in Winnipeg this August.
Among the items in a March Break feature in the Register is a photo of Chantal Peng leading a Global Citizenship workshop.
The public now knows about the national awards received by two Horton staff members. Cafeteria manager Sandra Barker was recognized for having Chartwell’s highest sales in Canada and day janitorial supervisor Dawn LeBlanc was chosen Employee of the Year for ServiceMaster.
Six Griffins who are members of the Wolfville Tritons had a challenging meet recently as storm conditions and technical difficulties resulted one-shot finals and bone-chilling pool temperatures. Swimming in this provincial meet were Sophie Bekkers, Britney Guiney Yallop, Celeste Mol, Ellie O’Driscoll, Michelle Song and Sean Vibert.
