The RETSD board of trustees congratulates the winners of the 2022 School Board Medal Awards.
Every year, the trustees bestow six School Board Medal Awards on graduates who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership, contributions to their school and community, and positive relationships with school staff.
Our six senior years schools each nominate a student and a subcommittee of the board interviews the six students. One student is normally chosen as the Gold Medal Award recipient and five are Silver Medal Award winners.
The board opted to present Gold Medal Awards to two students this year due to the overall calibre of all the students who were nominated. When it came to the two Gold Medal Award recipients, there was no way to decide between their achievements, presentations, and contributions to their community.
The board subcommittee members who interviewed the medallists were impressed by the way each of them was able to remain dedicated to academic excellence and to make a difference in the lives of those around them.
The board is confident our world will be a better place thanks to the compassion shown by these students during their school years, and that will continue throughout their lives.
