Loyalist grads amid the flooding in Alberta

Our thoughts are with our students and grads caught up in the flooding in Alberta. Taylor Weaver (class of 2010) is working in High River as a reporter/photographer and was forced to evacuate along with the town’s population. Taylor was busy covering the flood and had minutes to salvage what he could before his basement apartment flooded out.
