Our Emerging Leader - Nolan Herritt
In this edition of Our Emerging Leaders series, we are profiling Grade 9 student Nolan Herritt. Nolan is in his second year with us at King’s-Edgehill and makes the daily commute from his home in Blockhouse, NS on the Chester Day Bus.
Nolan is a focused and mature young man who leads by example in classes, on the soccer pitch, and on the ice during hockey season. Nolan continues to make a name for himself amongst both staff and students alike due to his integrity and hardworking approach.
What does Leadership mean to you? To me leadership means taking pride in what you do and stepping up to take responsibility for things when needed.
What words would people use to describe your leadership style? Other people would say I’m Independent and that I try to help others reach their potential.
Who do you look up to when it comes to leadership? I look up to my father and NHL player Jonathan Toews. Dad, because he always he tries to help others and he never puts anyone down, but just wants to help people. Toews because even when his team is losing, he tries to motivate and push them.
What are your goals for the year? Earn my honours tie (85% academic average or higher) and get out of my comfort zone by trying to learn new things.
