Awards

Reinhart Family Opportunity Award

Description:       Kevin Reinhart knows the impact that sport can have on the lives of young people. As a competitive hockey player growing up, he played junior hockey for the Kitchener Rangers and was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs. While he didn’t end up playing for the Leafs, hockey opened the door to education, enabling Kevin to attend St. Mary’s University and to develop a successful business career.

Kevin joined the Edge School Society Board in 2015, seeing an opportunity to help build an environment for young student-athletes that is closely aligned with his values. Wanting to support students who would not otherwise get the opportunity to develop their character and leadership skills through the Edge program, Kevin and his family established the Reinhart Family Opportunity Award at Edge School in the Fall 2017.
