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 Nepean High School, Hugh Kelly!


Hugh Kelly is the epitome of a well-rounded, outstanding STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) student, and a school community changemaker. He has achieved academic excellence in Calculus, Computer Science, and Physics, always remaining humble amongst his peers and actively supporting his classmates. His talents and interests have gone far beyond the classroom as well: he was integral in transforming Knightwatch, the school online student newspaper, by expertly collaborating with his peers to move a massive publication towards a more journalistic approach. He is also a mentor and leader in the Nepean High School theatre community: since joining the Improv Team in grade 9, Hugh has developed a skill for leadership. As the current Team Captain for this year's Improv team, he led the team to victory at the Canadian Improv Games Ottawa Regional Tournament. With all that he has on his plate, Hugh also leads set design and construction, and is the lead actor in this year’s school theatre production. Whether it be in math, science, journalism or the arts, Hugh is an excellent example of ability, humility, and positivity!
