“Happy Birthday everyone,” Saskatchewan Lt.-Gov. Gordon Barnhart called out during Central Collegiate Institute (CCI) centennial celebration on Thursday.
The Queen’s representative said high school is a time in someone’s life when people meet mentors, forge strong friendships and learn ideas and skills that last them the rest of their lives. At CCI, he said a multitude of individuals have enjoyed such school benefits ove the past 100 years.
“I think education is so important.”
Several members of Coun. Don Mitchell’s family graduated from CCI and at one time the city’s representative at the centennial event was himself a student at the local public high school.
During his speech, Mitchell remninisced about the school principal back in the 1950s and how that person helped shaped Mitchell’s and other students’ sense of character.
Mitchell said CCI was noted at the time of its creation for bringing an element of collegial gothic” architecture to the 1910 Saskatchewan landscape. He added it is his hope and conviction the school will survive government budget cuts and continue to shape young characters well into the future.
“Central has a vital role in Moose Jaw’s next 100 years, you can be sure.”
