Amanda Neil

Recipient
Delta, British Columbia

Amanda is being honoured today for her actions in remembrance of our Veterans. When reading an article in 2006 about the unmarked graves of our war veterans, Amanda was moved to act, as she felt that a veteran who gave his life to save our country deserved a grave marker. To date, Amanda has raised $225 each for over 80 grave markers for forgotten soldiers at Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver. Amanda has accomplished more in her sixteen years than many of us do in a lifetime. She has inspired, by her example, not only her fellow students at Delta Secondary, but all Canadians.
