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 Merivale High School: Kevin J.!

Kevin is an exemplary student whose contributions have significantly enriched the Merivale High School community. He has contributed as a student leader in a variety of formal and informal capacities in addition to his academic achievement. Kevin’s ability to balance academic excellence and extracurricular involvement is a testament to his well-rounded character. As part of Athletic Council, Kevin had a key role in organizing and promoting intramural sports. His leadership and enthusiasm have increased student participation and fostered a strong sense of school spirit and camaraderie. In addition, Kevin has been involved in Students’ Council as Secretary and in other club leadership roles. Kevin demonstrated remarkable initiative as a student-founder of the Merivale Chess Club. Initially an online endeavour, his vision and persistence turned it into a popular in-person club. He then mentored another student to take over as leader. Kevin is an outstanding young man whose positive influence spans leadership, athletics, clubs, and mentorship, and whose involvement in the Merivale High School community is extensive and impactful.
