He maintains a 94% academic average, was awarded the Nikki Redekop Volleyball Scholarship, Dr. Dale Iwanoczko Memorial Volleyball Scholarship and was a Graduating All-Star. He also competed in both high jump and triple jump at the Provincial Track & Field Championship. Dane volunteers at the Golden Door Geriatric Centre and Victoria General Hospital Adult morning Program. He was a member of the Grad committee and is involved in the Terry Fox Run, Walk for the Congo and Walk for Darfour at his school. Dane states, “My high school sport experiences at Fort Richmond Collegiate were the most enjoyable and special times in the three years which I was enrolled there. I learned the basics of each of the sports that I played, and more importantly, the basics of life. The hard work I gave in the gym and on the court/field taught me to work hard in the classroom and has given me the confidence, personal development and leadership that I will need as I enter post-secondary education at the University of Manitoba, and later on in the working world.”
