2015 Young Male of the Year Award Recipient
“It’s in you to give” – the slogan for Canadian Blood services, is something that Stuart Isherwood takes to heart. As part of the KSS Young Blood for Life program, he has coordinated two blood drives in the past year that also involved educating fellow students about the need for blood. He’s also a regular donor.
Stuart is a long time volunteer at the Kelowna General Hospital where he works at both the Royal Bistro and on the research team in emergency. He is also a volunteer with Canadian Hospital Injury Reporting and Prevention Program and a Hospital Book Delivery volunteer as part of the hospital’s library system.
At school, Stuart is a member of the KSS Interact Club, Young Liberals, Reach for the Top and the Grad Council. He works part time for McDonalds after school and is also a volunteer with the Ronald McDonald House Charity.
In 2014 he was chosen to attend the Canadian Student Leadership Conference and spent part of the summer volunteering at Camp OC. His volunteer hours for 2015 total 373 hours.
