2023-2024 Student Recognition Awards
Posted on 06/25/2024

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and vice-principals for their demonstration of initiative, supported by the will to succeed, the dedication to finish what they started, and the commitment to achieve their personal best.

Congratulations to this year’s winner from Canterbury High School: Danica C.!

Danica served as one of the Co-Presidents for Canterbury High School’s Student Council, where she inspired her peers to serve the student body with integrity and compassion. She was instrumental in providing fun activities that built school spirit and a sense of belonging, and she worked to create an environment where students helped and supported each other as they journeyed through their academic year. Danica’s development as a leader began when she made the courageous decision to put her name forward as Grade 11 Representative and won. This led to her participation in multiple Spirit Weeks, school dances, student assemblies, and more. In her final year, she balanced her Co-President duties with her LINK Crew work, supporting grade 9 students, participating in a team that brought OC Transpo to Canterbury to hear concerns around transportation, and advocating for equitable supports for students with disabilities. Danica also found time and energy to perform in community theatre and school productions, including the Grad Show presentation of The Laramie Project. She accomplished all of this while maintaining high marks with a rigorous academic schedule.
