SBDHS Alumni - Jeylyn Sarmiento

Jeylyn graduated from SBDHS in 2015 with Honours!

She attended Holy Ghost School for early & middle years.

My name is Jeylyn Sarmiento, and I attended St. B from grade 9 -12, graduating in 2015. I have nothing but positive memories from my high school years and have formed many relationships at St. B that I still have to this day. The St. B community and the staff do a great job preparing their students for university while also serving as a strong support system even after graduation. I had so much fun throughout my high school years, while still being provided with a strong academic foundation, which primarily has to do with the teachers I had as well as the opportunities I was able to explore during my time here. I will always cherish and appreciate all the memories I have made at St. B.

Co-curricular highlights

I was very involved in the athletics program. I played volleyball, basketball, badminton, soccer, track & field, and competed in dragon boat throughout high school. I also participated in the 2014 & 2015 MHSAA badminton provincial championships and the 2014 MHSAA soccer provincial championships. Through dragon boat, I also fundraised more than $1,700 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Occasionally, I would also help with JV girls’ basketball practices too. I enjoyed being an active member of the St. B community and being involved as much as I could.

Proudest moment at SBDHS

My proudest moment at St. B was being named MHSAA ‘AAA’ Jostens Athlete of the Year in 2015. I was delighted and honoured to be the first and only student to win this prestigious award in St. B history. I was glad that I was able to be recognized for all my work in sports as well as being able to bring additional recognition to the school and to the St. B athletic department.

Best Advice for a New Student
