Women in Sports & Leadership

Breanne Quist - Nanaimo Christian School

The Women in Sports & Leadership Award is to recognize the service and leadership of women in school sports. The recipient is a role model to colleagues and student- athletes alike. The recipient has made a tangible impact on school sport and has demonstrated commitment to their student-athletes, their school, and their sport.

“We’re thrilled that Mrs. Quist is being recognized by BC School Sports. Bre works tirelessly with our athletes and coaches to build a strong and varied athletics program at NCS. Yet, her impact extends far beyond our own gymnasium; Bre's passion for athletics has allowed her to build strong connections with athletes, parents, coaches and Athletic Directors throughout the province. We are incredibly fortunate to have her as an integral member of our exceptional team at NCS.” -- Jon Roper, NCS High School Principal.

The BCSS awards, eight categories in total, recognize individuals who have demonstrated exceptional commitment and dedication to fostering student-athletes in their pursuit of sport excellence. These awards from BC School Sports (the governing body for provincial championships and inter-school sport for 450 schools in BC) aim to honour those whose tireless efforts behind the scenes contribute significantly to the growth, development, and success of student-athletes, both on and off the field of play.

It is such a privilege to celebrate these incredible individuals. They have dedicated so much to supporting school sports and changing the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of student-athletes. They are truly the very best of the school sport community.” -- Jordan Abney, BCSS Executive Director
