In 2006, Randy was a grade 11 student at AY Jackson. In February 2006, he was the first student to sign up for the jPod program (see section in this blog describing this unique and powerful program). In November 2006, Randy was chosen to give a speech to the Minister of Education and others about the jPod program. The program was created in response to the need to assist students who were struggling to be successful in the traditional classroom.
His speech was captured in the magazine Ontario Prospects 2006 – Follow Your Dreams. Go to page 2 to read his powerful speech.
Randy will begin his masters in environmental studies at York University in the fall of 2011.
