Excerpt from letter of support English Montreal School Board/ John Grant High School:
I know I speak for all the staff that partook in the presentations, as well as all the students who participated, when I say that the courage and passion that we saw during those talks was inspiring. The students were exposed to information that is essential for their continued welfare and due to the manner in which it was presented, were able to be involved and express themselves.. I know they all got a lot out of the information and testimonials, and I know that for some it demonstrated paths, answers and possibilities that they did not know existed.”
-S.Syd Apel/ Guidance counselor, J. McMorran/Principal
