“There are many people I would like to thank such as my family, teachers, and coaches, but the two most important people I would like to express gratitude towards are my mother and father,” said Lossiah.  “My mother, Kelly Lossiah, has put countless hours in and sacrificed many of her own events to help me with school and cheerleading.  Without her endless love and support, I would not be anywhere close to where I am today, and for that I am eternally grateful.  I would like to thank my father, Chad Lossiah, for always being a pillar of support that I could turn to when I was frustrated or upset.  No matter what was going on, he would always be there to share his love and hugs.”  

When asked her thoughts on graduation, she replied, “Moving to any new chapter will always be difficult, but I am excited to face this new challenge head-on.  While I am sad to depart from my childhood home and friends, the idea of making my way into the world and working hard to achieve success is a welcomed new task that I am excited to tackle.”  

Carly Lossiah’s family hails from the Yellowhill Community.  She is the daughter of Kelly and Chad Lossiah, granddaughter of Alvin and Anita Lossiah and great granddaughter of Dorothy Lossiah.
