amiskwaciy Academy and The Edmonton Rush

On Tuesday, February 25, Jeremy Thompson of the Onondaga First Nation and star player of the Edmonton Rush lacrosse team came to amiskwaciy to visit classes and inspire youth with his story of perseverance in sports. Jeremy used his athleticism as a tool to get through university and he was eventually drafted to play in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). He now plays as a star forward for the Edmonton Rush and many students were invited to watch Jeremy and the Edmonton Rush defeat the Toronto Rock on Friday. He even scored an amazing goal and met with amiskwaciy students after the game. Thanks, JT! We at amiskwaciy are behind you.
