Spencer O’Brien Visit

Thank You, Spencer O’Brien

On Friday, September 22nd, we had the privilege of listening to one of the world’s top snowboarders, Spencer O’Brien, as she delivered an inspirational message on the importance of hard work, perseverance, patience, resiliency and family support in order to achieve one’s goals in life.  Born in Alert Bay, she is proud to say that her love for the sport started in the North Island.

Thank you for the visit Spencer, and NISS wishes you the best in your future endeavours.
