Whitesand First Nation visits Superior high school to make $1,000 donation to the school’s Aboriginal Student Council.

THUNDER BAY – Laila Doblej remembers when she first came from her home in Whitesand First Nation to attend high school at Superior Collegiate and Vocational Institute.

It was the school’s then-newly formed Aboriginal Student Council that really helped her get settled.

“When I first got here I had nowhere to go. I didn’t really know anybody,” she said.

“These were the only people I knew and they were my go-to. They made me feel a lot more safe and made me feel better. I had guidance. I think it’s a really good thing we have this here for students that come into Thunder Bay from northern communities or anywhere.”

Now a Grade 11 student and president of the council, she accepted a $1,000 donation from Whitesand’s band councillors when her community’s leaders came to the school for a special visit on Tuesday.
