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 Colonel By Secondary School: Malaika K.!  

Malaika is an active member in the school and within the district. As a Student Trustee, Malaika has been involved in many activities and initiatives to promote inclusion and a positive school environment at Colonel By Secondary School. Using her understanding of things happening in the District, Malaika’s ability to understand the perspectives of others and reframe their thinking is truly special. She is positive, energetic, and kind, and she cares deeply about her fellow students. Malaika is a leader in the Black Excellence Club and an active participant in CougarVision, Colonel By’s daily morning announcement television program. Despite being in the spotlight in many of her roles, Malaika also contributes to the community in small, unsung ways, like helping students she finds in crisis and getting them support from staff members when necessary. Malaika puts an honest and earnest effort into all of her schoolwork with everything else she is balancing. Through her many commitments at Colonel By and in the wider community, Malaika has consistently demonstrated her ability to balance many different interests and uplift those around her.
