Karen VoEvery 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 Karen Vo, who is one of this year’s Student Recognition Award recipients!

Karen has made a very strong commitment to the A.Y. Jackson school community as a positive role model in all aspects of school life. She has shown community leadership; been involved in groups, events, and activities; and fostered cross-cultural learning and understanding.

This year, Karen was the Student Council Co-President, having previously served on the Council in grades 10 and 11. She played a vital role in planning and organizing events such as spirit weeks, and spoke to parents at monthly School Council meetings. Karen also participated in the school’s Link Crew, Peer Tutoring, and Me to We club.

In the community, Karen has worked with GPI North America as a Communications Buddy for Japanese students. She helped with English lessons, shared Canadian culture, and guided field trip activities. She also volunteered as a physiotherapy assistant at Haley Rehab, which specializes in cancer rehab and lymphedema care. Karen is pursuing a career as a nurse, and her experiences, kindness, and care will be an immense benefit to all.
