M’CHIGEENG—At first, she did not expect to be chosen when she applied for one of the positions in the Canada-wide Shad program, but Manitoulin Secondary School (MSS) student Jocelyn Kuntsi will be taking part in a once-in-a-lifetime program experience. The Shad enrichment program is named after Shad Creek in southern Ontario, which is close to the school where the program originated in 1981. The Shad offices are now based in Waterloo, Ontario.

“I really wasn’t expecting to get into the program,” Ms. Kuntsi told The Expositor. “Then I received an email indicating I had been selected for the program, and I thought, ‘it must be a fluke’.”
