President / CEO: Calvin Howard
Calvin understands the difficulties that come with graduation from high school. It is difficult for youth to become aware of all the possibilities available to them, let alone choose a path without significant help. Having grown up in a small town, he understands the difficulties of this are magnified in rural cultures. He hopes the Education Advocacy Program can make an impact on youth, helping them choose walks of life which bring them the most fulfillment, whether this is in the trades, university, or other paths. As our CEO he hopes to direct the company to reach youth across Alberta and provide resources to assist as many as possible.
