Manitoba's Future 40

Grade 11 student Noah has been chosen as a finalist in CBC Manitoba's Future 40, which showcases some of the brightest young minds and influential change-makers under 40 working to make this province better for future generations. Noah is a youth ambassador for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and shares his personal struggles and triumphs of being a teen living with Type 1 diabetes through speaking engagements at events, information sessions and galas. He has personally raised over $30,000 for the cause through fundraising and selling his artwork and jewelry.

Noah was recently in Ottawa representing Canadian kids with Type 1 Diabetes and met with MPs, Senators and Ministers, including the Minister of Health.

Congratulations, Noah!

Read his CBC Manitoba’s Future 40 biography here:
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
