Youth achievement awards presented
The second round of the Ray Crossley Town of Comox Youth Achievement Awards were presented by Comox council last week, with six individuals recognized for their accomplishments within the community.
The awards were created by Coun. Hugh MacKinnon to honour the former three-term councillor who passed away more than three years ago.
“It recognized somebody who has had extraordinary contributions to the community,” MacKinnon explained last year.
Cody Parker, a NCAA javelin champion, Riley Wheeldon, a Canadian PGA golfer, Liam Cursley, winner of the Canadian Youth Stand-Up Paddleboard Championship, Nicole Kardos, Osler Shield Award Winner at Highland School, Mia Maltais, another winner of the Canadian Youth Stand-up Paddleboard Championship and Tyler Kostiuk, winner of the B.C. High School Javelin Championship for the second year in a row were honoured with a framed certificate and town pin.
