4-time Olympian Jayna Hefford visited Centre Hastings SS

Students at Centre Hastings Secondary School were thrilled to meet Jayna Hefford, a women’s ice hockey player.

The 4-time Olympic champion and 3-time gold medalist gave a motivational message to the student body on Tuesday, April 24. Hefford spoke of her personal journey, as well as that of the Canadian Womens team as they prepared for and went to the Vancouver Olympics.

Hefford’s had three key messages for students: 1) prepare; 2) believe and trust in your plan; and 3)  persevere through adversity.

It was an experience the students will not soon forget. Several got to hold Hefford’s Olympic gold medal.
