2021 Student Recognition AwardsStudent Recognition Award RecipientEvery year, the OCDSB Student Recognition Awards celebrate students who have demonstrated initiative, the will to succeed, the dedication to finish what they started, and the commitment to achieve their personal best. Congratulations to Ruqiya Ahmed, who is one of this year’s Student Recognition Award recipients!

Ruqiya is an incredible model of student leadership at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School. She is a founding member of the school's Diverse Student Union, where she leads meetings, encourages dialogue, acts as a liaison with school administrators, assigns learning tasks and deliverables, and more. She has helped organize events like black history celebrations, an analysis on alternative texts to replace To Kill a Mockingbird, a presentation on Supporting Muslim students during Ramadan, and a Celebrating Eid event. Ruqiya is also Co-President of her school’s Student Council, and has worked tirelessly to support student morale during such a challenging year. She is fearless in taking on new challenges, whether they are in the classroom, at Model United Nations conferences, on the cross country ski course, or on the Rugby field. It would be difficult to find a leadership activity at school that Ruqiya is not part of! Her positive attitude, desire to support others, and work ethic will not be forgotten.
