Olympic Hero Makes Us Proud

It is common when someone has success on the world stage that everyone will try to claim that person as their own.  In the case of Carey Price, School District No. 27 can justifably claim the Olympic gold medallist as a district alumnus.  Raised in Anahim Lake and later attending school in Williams Lake, Price’s story is fairly well-known.  On Sunday, Price was chosen as the best goaltender in the Olympics.  Exhibiting a calmness and poise in the midst of pressure-packed situations, Price’s play was equalled by his demeanour and positive attitude.

School District No.  27 salutes one of our own – athlete, First Nations role model, and Olympic gold medallist Carey Price.  Congratulations, Carey!
