Tara Ricioppo, teacher at Morinville Community High School (MCHS), invited alumni, Brooks Arcand-Paul of Alexander First Nation to share his story of growing up on the reserve, attending MCHS and his passion in becoming a lawyer. He specializes in Indigenous law and shares his interest in the justice system with his auntie, Cheryl Arcand-Kootenay, who recently was appointed the first Alexander First Nation and female Treaty 6 member to become a judge. His visit to the school included spending time addressing grade nine students. Brooks was honoured to be asked to come and “give back to the community that helped raise him.”
