2022 Young Haleians' Endeavour Award Winner Announced

2022 Young Haleians' Endeavour Award Winner Announced

The Young Haleians Committee is very proud to announce that Kyiah O'Donohue (2015-20) is the recipient of the Endeavour Award for 2022.

The Young Haleians' Endeavour Award provides a unique opportunity for a member of the Young Haleian community to be nominated (or self-nominate) for an award that provides financial support designed to enable them to pursue their future goals – no matter their field of pursuit.

Every Young Haleian has the opportunity to strive towards a goal with purpose, and the Young Haleians’ Award is designed to provide the support needed to do so. The criteria for the award are outlined as follows:  

  • To  be  awarded  to  a  Young  Haleian  under  the  age  of  30  who  has  established  commitment  towards  and  achieved  (or  is  significantly  advanced  towards  achieving)  success  in  his  chosen  field  of  endeavour.    
  • He  must  be  able  to  demonstrate  noteworthy  accomplishments  within  this  field  and  have  strategies  in  place  to  further  progress  towards  a  significant  goal  while  reflecting  the  values  of  Hale  School.    
Among many strong applicants, Kyiah was the standout candidate who will be awarded $5,000 to further pursue his promising basketball career in the USA.Through the award, Kyiah will be supported to return to playing college-level basketball which was briefly paused due to travel restrictions and costs.

Kyiah's resilience to continue pursuing his passion, his determination to support his family and self-fundraise his path to returning to college basketball, and his ambitions for the future make him a wonderful representative of our Hale community. For current students, the boarding community, the Aboriginal community, his family, and recent graduates, Kyiah represents a strong role model who reflects many of the values that we aspire to embody at Hale.
