Wm. E. Hay Composite High School teachers and staff members took the time during the busy end of school year period to honour students that have surpassed themselves at the school’s annual Color Awards evening.

The athletic board’s first award was the Block “S”, which is given annually to students who have contributed most to interscholastic athletics during their high school career. Points are awarded for participation in each activity. The recipients were Kristy Wade, Landon Potter, Travis Hutchison, Luke Thorne, Anton Stewart and Zac Coulas.

Katrena Heier and Kaitlin Poapst received the Bar “S” award, which is given annually to students who have already received a Block “S” and have distinguished themselves by attaining nine or more points in one year.

Anton Steward won the Dana Roberts Memorial Award, which is presented to the athlete who exemplifies all of the qualities of a good athlete; strong leadership, sportsmanship, respect, enthusiasm, and dedication to track and field.

Two athletes won medals at the provincial level and were given Provincial recognitions by the athletic board. Alana Skocdopole won a gold medal in cross-country and Kristy Wade won a gold medal in badminton during the last school year.

The school also recognized its freshmen athletes. Jennifer Taylor, Kayleigh Croker, Jamie Ternes, Kennidy Fisher, Andrew Kim, Nicholas Baharally and Jordan Bauman were all given Grade 9 Athletics Awards, which are presented to those Grade 9 students who have earned eight or more points by participating on athletic teams.

Katrena Heier and Landon Potter were named athletes of the year. Heier, whose main sports are basketball and track and field, won the Sally Bishop Award, while Potter, whose main sports are football and track and field, won the Bob Stewart Award. Both winners had satisfactory scholastic records, were examples to the student body, contributed significantly to the interscholastic athletic program, displayed a high quality of sportsmanship and excellent leadership qualities.
