Kennedy Johnstone


Huron at Western University

Business Management & Organizational Studies

An athlete who excels at rugby, soccer, hockey and ultimate, Kennedy shared her love of Havergal’s Athletics Program as Sports Prefect in her graduating year. A member of the Canadian Rugby Development Academy, she joined Havergal in Grade 9 in awe of the school’s sense of spirit and community. In Grade 10, she went on exchange to Perth, Australia, where she made friendships for life and gained some independence. Kennedy was an early entrepreneur, starting her own swimming lesson business at the age of 14. “I registered my program with the Royal Lifesaving Society, and it didn’t take long until my entire summer schedule was filled with kids taking swimming lessons in my backyard,” she explains. “Watching children learn to love the water is my favourite part of my business.”

Outside of athletics, Kennedy is interested in studying business and participated on Havergal’s DECA team. She is also a passionate advocate for cancer research and was a community volunteer hockey and softball coach. Kennedy is currently a member of the Women’s Varsity Rugby Team at Western University, where she is enrolled in Business Management and Organizational Studies and will complete her degree at the Western Ivey School of Business in her third and fourth years of university.
