In order to reflect the shift that is currently taking place at IST, this year marked the inaugural CAS Award given on graduation day. Replacing the Community Service Award, the CAS Award acknowledges the vast range of ways that students here at IST contribute to community.
Here is the citation:
The CAS Award is given to the student in the graduating class who has contributed to community through exemplary participation in a range of collaborative projects that span Creativity, Action and Service. The student has been an outstanding role model for peers throughout their experiential learning journey due to their responsible decision-making and problem solving, excellent interpersonal skills and reflective approach. The recipient of this award is tirelessly committed to bringing about positive change.
There were so many grade 12 CAStars worthy of this credit, but after shortlisting students and then reaching out to all staff at secondary school for their votes, it was decided that REDIET LEWI really stood out in all areas of C,A and S.
You can read all about the experiences of this exemplary CASuperstar on Rediet’s Blog.
