Student Award

Each year, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board Student Recognition Awards celebrate excellence in student leadership. Students are chosen by their principals and/or 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 recipient from Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School, Ramla Ahmed!

Ramla Ahmed is a model student who has consistently achieved high academic standards while contributing significantly to her school. Ramla is a champion for social justice: through her work with the Diverse Student Union and Student Council, she has helped make LDH a more equitable and inclusive place for all. This year, Ramla assumed the primary leadership role for both groups, acting as Co-President for School Council and President of the Diverse Student Union. Ramla is driven to challenge societal norms and engage in difficult conversations, refusing to accept the status quo where issues of equity exist, but doing so in an open and respectful manner. Ramla’s ability to empower others is truly special: she is patient and open to other perspectives, yet confident in expressing her beliefs. She is positive, energetic, and kind, and cares deeply about her fellow students. Given Ramla's passion for social justice, her teachers suspect she is only beginning to impact the community! The true nature of her contributions will only be measured after what is sure to be a lifelong commitment to bring about change.
