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.

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.

The accomplishments of our students are always a source of pride and celebration here at King’s-Edgehill. These accomplishments can vary from provincial championships in sport to personal bests on tests and everything in between. Regardless of what the actual accomplishment is, each individual student’s success is something that our entire School can take pride in. The same is true of the accomplishments and successes that our former students achieve years after graduating from King’s-Edgehill School.
