Danielle Hoult Courage Award

We are proud to sponsor the Danielle Hoult Courage Award in memory of Dani Hoult. Dani was a 2019 Graduate of Riverside Secondary who touched the lives of everyone she met. She courageously battled cancer for many years and was an inspiration to us all because of her character, empathy and courage while facing so much adversity. Dani passed away in April 2021 and we want to honour Dani’s memory by annually awarding $2000 for post-secondary school or training to a graduating Riverside Secondary student that embodies the same characteristics as Dani. This year's winner Denisa Doftorneau (pictured with the Hoult family) was a friend of Dani's who shared many great moments with her in their performing arts classes.

Students being considered for this award should represent some or all of the following:

  • Kindness, empathy and respect toward classmates, teachers and staff

  • Courage by going forward in the face of adversity

  • Resiliency in the face of unusually difficult circumstances at home or a life changing obstacle

  • Positivity in dealing with everyday situations
