'I was ready to pass out': LORAN scholar
Two Saint John High School students have earned prestigious scholarships in recognition of their community involvement and academic success.
Marylise Habiyambere has been named a LORAN scholar and Sam Song has been awarded the D&R Sobey Atlantic Scholarship for the commerce program at the Smith School of Business at Queen's University.
Not only are these scholarships competitive and prestigious, they are also incredibly valuable.
The Sobey scholarship is valued at $80,000 while the LORAN scholarship sits at $100,000.
"When I got the email I started yelling at my dad to come have a look and make sure I was reading it right," said Song.
"I was ready to pass out when I got the call. I was like 'Really, ok great'and then I passed out," said Habiyambere."I told my dad and he didn't believe me at first."

To wrap up an exciting semester at Horizon Health, high school co-op students got to participate in skills lab exercises at the Saint John Regional Hospital during their last day. Jean Dean, a nurse manager at Ridgewood Veterans Wing and Saint John High School alumni (class of 1974), takes responsibility for coordinating the Horizon Health Nursing rotation available to high school co-op students interested in health sciences.
This wonderful program allows participating students to visit several units/departments and clinics, at St. Joseph's and the Regional Hospital, and learn from various health care professionals over the course of 14 weeks.
The Skills day Lab was a hit amongst the eleven students from our four local high schools that interviewed successfully to participate in the program 1st semester. Six students were from SJHS. Ms. Dean led students through a few interesting hands on learning exercises:

'One of those stories you talk about but don't think will actually happen'
Filled with roadblocks and detours, long nights and early mornings, Shania Graham's path wasn't easy, but always pointed in the direction of a hardwood floor and an orange leather ball.
If it takes a community to raise a child, Graham had the backing of Saint John.
"With the natural ability she had at a young age, you started to think that basketball might be Shania's ticket out," said Clara Tarjan, Graham's mentor in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. "It's one of those stories you talk about but don't think will actually happen.
"And then it did."

It was a slippery slope for Drew Murdock. The 17-year-old Saint John High School student never planned on starting, but his curiosity got the better of him. Before he knew it, he was in too deep. He was a theatre kid.
Within 18 months, with some encouragement from his school music teacher, Patricia Gallagher, Murdock has made his way from not singing a note in public, to starring in the school's upcoming production of The Phantom of the Opera.
The love affair with theatre started last year, when Murdock was in Grade 11. Gallagher pressed him to audition for Les Miserables, but when Murdock found himself on stage, things didn't go exactly as planned.
"I'd never sang in public before. At the time, I didn't sing," Murdock recalled with a laugh. "I auditioned and I sang the song an octave lower (than it was written), and that was really low. (Gallagher) called me a foghorn." Instead, Gallagher
