Three months into an usual school year, Quanah Traviss has a lot on his plate. The Loyalist Collegiate and Vocational Institute (LCVI) year five student is adjusting to the octomester system, is missing his high school band, and looking ahead to graduation.
He has also taken on the unique challenge of serving as Limestone District School Board (LDSB)’s first ever Indigenous Student Trustee. Traviss said he arrived at the position after previously participating in his school’s leadership club, planning events such as semi-formals and spirit days.
