Grade 11 English students of Mrs. Krista Cabel at Miramichi Valley High School received a challenge recently. An assignment they were given required them to write a profile about an individual they are not acquainted with, using information collected by means of an interview with the “stranger”. While some students developed interesting and authentic stories gathered from war veterans, police detectives, prison employees and doctors, amongst others, student Shauna Sweeney reached outside the community and contacted her hero, former NHL hockey player Theo Fleury. To her surprise and delight Mr. Fleury suggested they conduct the interview over the telephone. Below is the resulting profile Shauna wrote about this well known Canadian.
