Northern Youth Role Models


The Northern Healthy Communities Partnership is proud to present our Northern Youth Role Models.

The exceptional youth featured in the Northern Youth Role Model Campaign are:

  • Claude Bridges, a student in Sandy Bay who emphasizes the importance of physical activity and staying in school
  • Summer Michel, the former Junior Chief in Pelican Narrows and often returns home from her university studies to support her community
  • ShayLynn McAuley, a student and dancer from La Ronge who shares her talents and passion through teaching dance at Bell’s Point Elementary School
  • Simon Crookedneck, an advocate for community inclusion and a healthy lifestyle, things that became especially important to him following the loss of his father

As part of the Northern Youth Role Model Campign, a seven-poster series was developed that features the role models as well as the youths’ mentors: Darrell Sewap of Sandy Bay, Angie Merasty of Pelican Narrows, and Jenna O’Connor of La Ronge.
