Congratulations to Daniel Jensen, Olivia Robinson, and Wes Ruthloff in achieving their first degree Black Sash!  Wes tested for his Black Sash in December 2014.  Daniel and Olivia tested for their Black Sashes in January 2015.

Training to achieve a first degree Black Sash requires commitment and dedication as it can take 5 to 7 years and sometimes more, to learn the skills required.  Students who achieve this goal show outstanding perseverance and good work ethic.
