On the day after the Ontario Civic elections, outgoing Waterloo Mayor, Brenda Halloran, spoke to the Grade 10, 11 and 12 Choose 2 Lead students at Bluevale. In a lively one hour question and answer session, the always frank Mayor Halloran answered questions ranging from her career path and leadership opportunities, to women in leadership roles, to her years as the Mayor of Waterloo, and her positive outlook for the Waterloo community. The Bluevale students embraced her visit and many spoke with her after the Q and A had come to a conclusion. Over the years, Mayor Halloran has presented all of the Choose 2 Lead, Duke of Edinburgh, Bronze Awards before a City of Waterloo Council Meeting. The students in return presented the Mayor a 50th Anniversary Duke of Edinburgh pin as well as a Duke of Edinburgh blanket as a thank you to her from Bluevale.
