An Exemplary Young Beacher

Mark Killin was the second place winner in the Beaches Halloween Decoration Contest. Now 16, Mark's delight in preparing elaborate Halloween decorations began 10 years ago in helping his dad. Conceiving an overall design first, Mark, making use of materials collected over the years , assembled his winning effort, now with his dad aiding him., over a period of 4 weeks. Currently in grade 11 at Danforth Tech. Mark is enthusiastic about his course and instructors in art and dramatic arts and hopes in the future to become a set designer, eventually setting up his own company and even getting into film direction. Recently Mark, as part of a team from Danforth, was honoured for another accomplishment. At a robot design competition at the Ontario Science Centre, his school's creation came second. A well rounded lad, Mark is keen on sports and plays on both hockey and baseball teams. Mark's activities are nurtured by a close and supportive extended family which has helped him weather the death of his mother this year from cancer. Mark seems well on the way to becoming a well grounded and successful young man.
