Heather Richards, a 2015 graduate of White Hills Academy, is a second year student at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, completing a degree in science. In the future, Heather, who is from St. Anthony, hopes to pursue medicine or physiotherapy. Both options would allow her to work in a field that helps others—a goal of Heather’s.

As an avid hockey player, Heather volunteered with the St. Anthony and Area Minor Hockey Association for several years (along with other school based groups). A participant in many local, provincial, and national sporting events, she represented Newfoundland and Labrador at the Canada Winter Games as captain of the female ice hockey team. Heather is now a member of the Mount Allison University female hockey team!
