Centennial has been saddened with the news of former student Kristopher Heleine’s death. Kristopher, age 20, passed away on Monday, August 25, 2014.
Heleine battled with a morpheme syndrome, which is a genetic disorder that tears apart the connective tissue around bones. This caused Heleine a great deal of pain. Senior Alex Pryde-Wait said “There wasn’t a day that Kris didn’t feel pain, but everytime you saw him, he had a smile from ear to ear”. This kind of optimistic attitude Heleine showed was inspiring. Many students who knew Heleine, also agreed that Heleine was very optimistic, living each day to the fullest.
