Yukon Students Making an Impact

Liam Gishler

Two of our Yukon YouLearn students have been making an impact in a couple of significant ways.  
Liam Gishler is a young entrepreneur who has been making and selling a variety of wood products including candle holders, pencil holders and cheese platters.  His work has been featured in a CBC article found here and he was even interviewed on the radio.  Please read the article for more information about Liam's journey.
Liam was inspired by his friend Huxley who did something similar a few years ago and also had a CBC article.  He was dubbed the "wood block king".  In addition, Huxley was reading in a Social Studies book recently and noticed that agriculture in Yukon had been misrepresented on a map.  He wrote a letter to the publisher and received a response letter in which the company states "it certainly seems we presented the wrong information".
Well done, boys.  You are an inspiration!
