It’s hard to keep the travel bug at bay and High River’s Jaden Holle continues to explore the world and bridge cultures with her interest in languages.
Jaden was thrilled to receive a $750 Western Inspirational Award from our Western Financial Group Communities Foundation via High River’s brokers in 2012 for school.
After a couple try outs for the Stampede Royalty — a long time dream of hers — Jaden was Stampede Princess in 2018 and spent the year in this role of a lifetime.
Her adventure began and she traveled across Canada and the world where she educated corporations on the Stampede Foundation’s goals and mission.
One year later, she was crowned Miss Rodeo Canada and spent the year as ambassador. She recently hung up her hat at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas in Dec. 2019.
Well-traveled, Jaden is captivated by languages and has spent time living in France as a nanny and on a Rotary exchange in Mazatlán, Mexico.
While her schooling through the Saskatchewan Urban Native Teachers’ Education Program (SUNTEP) was put on hold for her Stampede Royalty year, she’s back at it.
Jaden is completing the final two years of her education degree virtually through the University of Saskatchewan. Her minors are in French and Indigenous studies.
“I have a strong interest in languages as a result of my travels and I’m passionate about language revitalization,” she said.
Jaden will graduate in December 2021, and we wish her well as she pursues her future career — specializing in Aboriginal language education.
The Foundation has supported communities served by Western Financial Group and its divisions since 2001. In addition to developing future leaders via student bursaries, our not-for-profit strengthens community connection points by way of infrastructure grants and assists the places where we call home during times of crisis.
