N.L. government tries to inspire students with poster of local hockey hero

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - NHL player Danny Cleary is being held up as a role model for school children in his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador in a work of art.

The government is providing every school with a framed limited-edition reproduction of a print of the local hockey hero, who has won the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings.

The work is by artist James Long and it's titled "Believe in Yourself."

The provincial government says the poster intended to inspire students to set high goals and pursue their own dreams and aspirations.

Schools from kindergarten to Grade 12 are being asked to display the Cleary print in a prominent place.

The 32-year-old forward is a native of Harbour Grace and the first person from Newfoundland and Labrador to win the Stanley Cup.
