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 Ridgemont High School: Becca A.!


Becca is a great student. She is not only strong academically, but just as importantly, truly embodies Ridgemont High School’s community values. She is kind, caring, empathetic, smart, and funny. Her involvement in sports, both in school and in the community, is exemplary – particularly given that she also works outside of school time. In short, Becca is an amazingly well-rounded student. She is very busy, volunteering with the school’s newcomer girls hockey team, playing high-level hockey outside of school, and participating as a member of numerous sports teams at Ridgemont. Nothing can stop her. Last year, when several male student hockey players at Ridgemont wanted to create a school hockey team, Becca joined. She currently plays as a goaltender on her competitive community team, but upon learning that the team at Ridgemont already had two goalies and needed an open-ice player, she seamlessly switched positions and played every game as a forward! Becca is deserving of this award because of her determination, work ethic, steadfast connection to the community, and the incredible care she exhibits toward everyone around her!
