Success in athletics and academics takes discipline, drive, desire, responsibility, resilience, selflessness and leadership that, together, create a solid foundation for success in all aspects of life. Established in 2017 by the Code family, this award honours a Crescent Heights student who showed dedication to both their academic and athletic pursuits and will assist the recipient in pursuing future education in circumstances where they might not otherwise be able.
