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 Jadon Ilukhor, who is one of this year’s Student Recognition Award recipients!

Jadon Ilukhor is an incredibly intelligent and well spoken student, and has consistently demonstrated his commitment to social justice and equity at Glebe Collegiate Institute and in the wider community. As a member, and now Co-President, of the Black Student Association (BSA), Jadon has continuously worked to find new ways to welcome all students to the group, especially grade 9 students and newcomers who may not yet have a strong social connection at school. Jadon creates a space where all students feel a sense of belonging, often saying that his favourite part about BSA is that students can hang out together and “just be." He is also an excellent Link Leader, supporting students in settling into high school. His passion for exploring issues surrounding equity is further evident in his involvement in Glebe's Theatre of the Oppressed, in the key role he played in organizing three successful Black History Months, and in his contributions to the OCDSB's Black Student Youth Forum. Jadon's leadership has had a wonderful and positive impact for students, for staff and for the larger school community!
