Congratulations to Byron McDonald, who is one of this year’s Student Recognition Award recipients!

Byron McDonald is a one-of-a-kind example of resilience, diligence and kindness at Richard Pfaff Alternate Program. His response to adversity has always been to face it head on, and learn as much as he can along the way. No matter what challenge he faces, Byron never fails to make those around him smile. He has participated in many activities and extracurriculars, including setting an example of the importance of physical and mental health in his school’s fitness program. He also demonstrated quiet, genuine and gifted leadership in programs like Youth Active Media and Blueprint For Life. Beyond this, Byron consistently showed respect and genuine care for the wellbeing of his peers, always finding a way to put those around him at ease. The empathy and integrity with which he conducts himself is an example for students and teachers alike! Whether within his comfort zone (programming modules, writing code) or outside of it (learning to dance, writing poetry), Byron excels by remaining positive and demonstrating a willingness to learn!
