Central Collegiate senior, Liv Erickson, has been awarded one of the Best and Brightest Entrance Scholarships to the University of Saskatchewan. 

The George and Marsha Ivany President's First and Best Scholarship is awarded based on academics, leadership and contributions to the school and community, to a student from a Canadian high school with a 95 per cent average or higher.  

Erickson is one of five students to be awarded the scholarship and will receive $40,000 towards her schooling over the course of four years at the U of S. 

“I feel amazing,” she says. “I always felt really drawn to U of S for so many reasons, and it really felt like [the scholarship] solidified my decision clearly, and it’s gotten me really excited about going to university... I’m really pumped about it, it’s an awesome thing to receive.” 

She currently has a 96 per cent average and has made numerous contributions to the community. 

“In my written application, I talked about starting an environmental club at my high school, as well as getting involved in some other youth climate activism groups in Regina. Also, I spoke about my executive role in SLC (Student Leadership Council). I’m the Head of Fundraising so I plan a lot of fundraisers for our school.” 

Erickson is the Central Collegiate representative on the Youth Advisory Committee for the Moose Jaw City Council. The Youth Advisory Committee speaks about situations and issues in Moose Jaw that youth face and tries to come up with solutions to present to the city council. 

She also volunteered as a coach for the “Girls in the Game” organization. 

“They focus on encouraging young girls to stay in sports and encouraging self-confidence and strength, both mentally and physically,” she adds. 

Erickson plans on going into the Faculty of Arts and Science for a degree in the Environment and Society program with a certificate in sustainability. 

“I’m just passionate about climate action and I think that having an education in that field is what's going to make you a better leader. If you know what you’re talking about, you can act properly and be fit for any role, whether that's in politics or in any other sort of policy-making area. Even if that’s working on projects in sustainability, or research, or education, I think you really need to know what you’re talking about to be able to make a greater impact.”

Central Collegiate will mark its 100th year in July 2010 [ July 8-11, 2010 ] with a birthday party and reunion. In the first of our profiles on former graduates, the TimesHerald spoke to Moose Jaw resident Marion Tolley.

For Marion Tolley, school was an opportunity she grasped with both hands and she knew she was lucky to be learning.

Tolley, then Marion Affleck, attended Central Collegiate and graduated in June 1941, but it was only th...

It seems that there are rumours floating about that the CCI 100 Reunion has been cancelled due to lack of interest.

Nothing could be further from the truth. As you can see, we are alive and well.

We actually had to laugh when we heard this rumour... with the Comittee neck deep in planning meetings it sounds funny to hear something like this pop up in conversation.

To quote Mark Twain, "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated".

Addendum: ... we have learned that there was confu...

The CCI 100 "Chalkboard" is back!

We took it away until we had more people sign onto the Alumni Page.

We'd love to give everyone their own space in their profiles but this will have to do... a big board for everyone. You can send greetings, ask questions, tell us about your day... whatever, but please keep it clean.

Click to take you to the Chalkboard.

Attention Golfers!! Take the poll!

We're trying to find out what sort of interest there is for golf.

Golf is planned for Thursday at Hillcrest and a Par 3 on Friday.

If golf is your thing while at the Reunion please submit your vote on the CCI 100 Poll Page (just below Reunion News).

We only need the "Yes" votes so there really isn't a need for any "No" votes.

Thank you.

(if anyone is wondering, we sent out a broadcast email to everyone and learned very quickly that, yes indeed, your spam filters are working correctly...
