Jaxson Creasey is a high school senior, and has been accepted into the University of Victoria’s Business program for Fall 2015. Jaxson also has Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a condition that limits his mobility. He’s used a power wheelchair since he was two, and has been on the Canuck Place program for several years.
Jaxson is also a stellar student, and is exceptionally active in the community. In addition to maintaining a 90% average in school while serving as both coach and manager to his high school volleyball team since the 7th grade, Jaxson regularly spent his summer volunteering.
He organized a “Give It Back” campaign on Vancouver Island, which raised $17,000 for Canuck Place in 2010. Since then he’s also used the campaign to fundraise for several other local and provincial charities, including the Rick Hansen Foundation.
All in all, Jaxson has a pretty impressive resume for a 17 year-old. TD Bank Group thought so as well. This year Jaxson was one of 20 recipients of a TD Scholarship for Community Leadership. Recipients are awarded up to $70,000 to fund their education.
We see bright things ahead for our friend Jaxson. UVIC is a lucky to have him.
