Connect, Converse, Catch-Up - Lucy Killacky

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Mar 24, 2021 1:57:00 PM

Lucy Killacky was a quiet girl with a mischievous smile who sat at the back of my Grade 9 English class in my first year at King’s-Edgehill. Over the next four years, I had the pleasure of coaching Lucy in both basketball (for three seasons) and rugby (for four seasons). Throughout those years, it was evident that Lucy was on a path that would lead her to success. Her maturity and moral compass seemed to make her wise beyond her years. Upon graduating, Lucy and I stayed in contact as she worked her way through a university degree and a varsity rugby career at my alma mater, StFX.

Connect, Converse, Catch-Up - Liam Hogan

It can be confusing to leave King’s-Edgehill School and enter the next academic stage with so many varied options and choices. Often there are appropriate years of trial and error and figuring out the road to a profession or vocation that suits one’s desires, lifestyle, and passions.  For   Liam Hogan (Class of 2017), it has been very straightforward and rewarding. He is feeling great about his academic choice to pursue Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Brunswick. “They load on an insane amount of work initially, and sometimes you are overwhelmed, but I highly recommend the career path,” he says. “But, you have to be willing to put in the work!” he adds with a note of caution.

Connect, Converse, Catch Up - Emerging Doctors

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Feb 23, 2021 10:20:00 AM

Recently, I was chatting with my great friend and colleague,   Mr. Rory Campbell, about “frontline workers” in the health care system as they face the challenges of “the-Cove”. The future of wellness is going to be exciting, challenging, and vital. We agreed that each of us would reach out to a few of our former students who are studying or working in medicine. He made a call to a few young doctors, while I cultivated the experiences of Alumni who have chosen nursing and other essential services that keep our populations vigorous.

Conversing with   Mr. Ryan Alguire (KES Staff 2015-19)  this week, one can’t help but think that he remains close to Nova Scotia despite being geographically so far away in British Columbia.

Marek Pramuka (1993-96) is living an American dream, and he traces its possibility back to a single moment in 1993.

“I was a boy and our hockey team was representing Slovakia in Montreal, and I thought that was the dream. Then the Headmaster of King’s-Edgehill, Mr. John Messenger (1990-95), asked me if I would like to come to King’s-Edgehill School. Honestly, I thought he was kidding!” 

Mr. Messenger and coach Darcy Walsh (1975-1977; staff 1980-2016) were following the recommendation and advocation of Dr. John Chomay, a Slovakian-Canadian who was devoted to helping boys from his homeland succeed in North America. Dr. Chomay was a professor at McGill University and facilitated the connection. KES invited Marek as he was a strong student as well as an exceptional athlete. This was a high compliment as Marek, at the tourney, was playing on a line with Michal Handzus, who would go on to play over 1000 games in the National Hockey League and win the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks.
