(NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C.)—Recent Carson Graham Secondary grad, Loren Laceste, is making all the right moves.
The youngster topped the competitors in the Canadian Youth Chess Championship’s under 18 category held in Richmond Hill, Ontario last week. With the Canadian competition firmly in hand, Laceste is off to Brazil in November to participate in the World Youth Chess Championship.
Laceste’s family immigrated to British Columbia from the Philippines in 2009 and has laid down roots in North Vancouver. His proud father, Mel, works in janitorial services at Capilano University.
“My son does not have plans to attend university this coming September,” he said. “Instead, he plans on working full-time after he competes in the championship in Brazil, then serving as a missionary.”
The family is hoping that someone can step forward to help them with travel costs to Brazil and with a laptop for Loren to use for chess game analysis of his opponent. Please contact Mel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
