A member of the student action leadership team that runs intramural and lunch hour events, Devon Stam is a Grade 12 student at Credo Christian who maintains a 90 per cent average and has been on the honour roll with distinction every term since Grade 8.

He is just as actively involved in the community, serving on the Township of Langley’s Youth Advisory Committee and on the Community and Transportation Safety Advisory Committee.

Stam also serves dinner at Building 272 in Aldergrove and participates in Youth Group activities at his church.

Stam excels in sports, from soccer, volleyball, and basketball to badminton, track and field, and hockey.

In soccer, he was brought up to the starting lineup for the senior team when he was only in Grade 10.

That team went on to place second in the Fraser Valley, and Stam was named player of the game at the provincial championships. He has also been named captain of both his soccer and basketball teams.
