Mike Babcock – Destined to Lead
On June 21st, 2011, the Edge Skill Academy North will proudly present Olympic gold medal and Stanley Cup winning coach Mike Babcock at its first ever legacy dinner event. Mike’s presentation entitled “Destined to Lead” is very fitting given the focus the Edge School places on excellence in academics, character-building and athletics.
This event celebrates the completion of the Edge School’s successful first year in Grande Prairie. This event will raise funds to provide opportunities for deserving students to attend the school in the years to come as well as to support capital projects that will foster continued growth and development of the school.

About the Edge School
The Edge school is based on the truism that a passion for sport drives a passion for learning and for leading. Brent Devost, Founder and President of Edge School, thought it possible to create a school where student-athletes brought their passion and love of sport to the classroom and into peer groups; where one need not sacrifice the pursuit of excellence in athletics for academic goals; where student-athletes felt safe, invited and engaged in following their dreams. He was right. A decade later, Edge School is thriving as it meets the dreams and needs of Calgary and area students in Grades 5 through 12. The Edge Skill Academy in Grande Prairie is celebrating the completion of its first year for hockey and dance athletes from grades 4 through 12, and most recently, The Edge Skill Academy in Fort McMurray which will open it’s doors to students in fall of 2011.
