It’s been a year now since Jace Thorsteinson’s terrible accident and what an amazing young man. A determined guy, he has come a long way since then.We in the Botha community are very proud of the achievements he has made. Like Jace says, “the sky is the limit”, and he has been working extremely hard to come where he is today and is pushing to reach where he was before that tragic day and beyond.

Jace received a beautiful buckle at the last rodeo he attended, just a little while ago from his Stettler and area competitors.The committee had it custom made after Jace’s accident, which they presented to him at this rodeo. Way to go, Jace!

McKenzie Hankins safely got to the University of Saskatchewan on Sept. 1,where she will be attending classes there to become a vet. Way to go, McKenzie! We here in the Botha community are very proud of you.We wish you all the very best in the future.
