LETHBRIDGE, AB – An investigation is underway by the Lethbridge School Division and the Lethbridge Police School Resource Officer team after it was revealed that potentially racist remarks were made between students.

The public school division says in a written statement that it’s aware of several comments posted online this past weekend while students were out of school. The exact details of those comments have not been shared by officials.

Work is currently underway to address this particular incident, but the school division says it’s also digging deeper to address the roots of racism in the local school community.

Officials say they plan to “understand and hear the profound hurt and anger that racism causes” and make positive changes going forward. 

Local high schools are also planning to host discussions about racism and how the division can better support equity, dignity and respect.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
