Parkland Secondary School – Students Helping Students
For several years, Parkland Secondary on the Sannich Peninsula has supported EHA BC by sponsoring a student. Work began in 2010, through the efforts of the Parkland Interact Club and the Student Council, and Kenyan student, Lewis Githinji Njorogo, began school with an initial two year commitment. With activities and events held to raise additional funds, Parkland was able to secure four years of tuition for Lewis, fondly referred to as their Kenyan Panther, and the hope is to extend beyond that with future fundraising efforts.
