Along with being the Volleyball Manitoba High School Coach of the year a few years back Mr. Vermette was also a pretty good hockey player and he used those talents and bit of toughness to earn a University Scholarship to play CIS hockey at Brandon U. With some hard work he turned that opportunity into an Education degree and a teaching position. This is one of the ways that high school athletics can assist you in your post secondary and career goals. Mr. Vermette was honored on November 28 at the U of B alumni hockey reunion. Way to go V. Can you spot him on the board?
