Quebec-born Nancy Drolet will be coming to Tumbler Ridge to address our students as part of the national ?Esteem Team? initiative. The Esteem Team is a Canadian youth development organization that enlists our top athletes to help encourage youth to develop character and confidence through interaction, education and sport.

Drolet, who has more than 20 years as a female hockey player, is ranked the third all-time scorer for Team Canada. A six-time gold medal winner at the World Championships, Drolet represented Canada when Women?s Hockey debuted as an Olympic sport in 1998 in Nagano, Japan. She and her teammates brought home a silver medal for their efforts.

The details of Drolet?s visit will be announced to the TRSS student body well in advance of her arrival on February 2nd.
