Grade 8 Georges H. Primeau students, Grade 9 Legal and MCHS students gathered in the MCHS gymnasium Tuesday afternoon to hear Robb Nash, a motivational speaker and singer who provided words of encouragement through music and stories. Nash spoke of his life-threatening accident when he was a teenager and the choices people can make in life. “Bad days are just going to happen and things happen with potential, you have the potential to be angry rest of your life or potential to turn it around and help others,” Nash told students.
MCHS student Angeline Charrois had an opportunity to go on stage and sing a song with Robb Nash, accompanied by Jonny Holliday on drums. The concert was a partnership between Nash’s organization and MCHS and was funded by Family and community Support Services. – Lucie Roy Photo
