Greg De La Lis
Greg De La Lis' Grade 11 and 12 chemistry and physics students at J.L. Ilsley High School in Halifax not only stay after class, they're willing to stay there for 12 hours at a stretch. Mr. De La Lis organized a marathon class to raise money for the World Wildlife Rainforest Fund. With the help of local entertainers, scientists and community members, the school managed to raise $4200. This environmentalism also extends to his classes' efforts to rejuvenate Halifax's MacIntosh Run, a river near the school.
