Horton in the News –
The front page story of Tuesday’s Valley Journal Advertiser was about the King family (Mike, Heidi, with kids Brett and Brynn) and Brett’s participation in the Breakaway Cycling Adventure for Kids with Cancer fundraiser to honour his mother’s memory. The 8-week adventure runs from July 5 to Aug. 30 and Brett will be accompanied by his friends, grade 12 students Mark Wilkie and Asa Hood. The story features quotes from Mike and Brett as well as photos of the family.
This week there is another Horton hoopster in the news with a player profile on grad Elliot Cederberg. The article features lots of quotes and two photos of Elliot who will be studying biology at Acadia this fall.
Grade 11 student, writer and autism advocate Jake Lewis was recently interviewed for an article in The Grapevine, the local arts, culture, and community newspaper. The piece talked about his fiction and nonfiction writing as well as upcoming projects. Jake was one of 15 youths from across the Atlantic Provinces chosen to interview survivors of institutionalization which will be part of a high school textbook.
