Student Award Ceremony recognizes 50 students
February 14, 2018
Approximately 50 students were honoured at the 2018 Student Awards Ceremony held in the Joanne and Peter Kenny Theatre on February 8, 2018.
Each year, King's hosts two ceremonies that honour student award recipients and the donors that make these awards possible. Feast of Christ the King and the Student Awards Ceremony provide opportunities for donors, award recipients and their families to meet and celebrate the accomplishments of some remarkable students at King’s.
The King’s University College Foundation takes pride in working closely with donors to recognize and help meet the needs of King’s students. Many of the awards and scholarships that students receive at King’s are made possible by private donations made from King’s faculty, staff, students, alumni, retirees, friends, organizations and community members.
Awards and scholarships were granted to students from every discipline and recognize academic achievement, student leadership, co-curricular involvement, and community volunteer efforts. These funds support educational and program costs as well as experiential learning opportunities.
Principal, Dr. David Sylvester, said to those in attendance: “the King’s students you will meet tonight are not change-makers-in-waiting. They are, in fact, already highly accomplished women and men who are, right now, making a difference here on our campus and across our local and global community.”
Every year, The Christopher Perrin Beatty Lecture in recognition of King’s outstanding teaching faculty precedes the student awards ceremony. This year, Dr. Trevor Hunter, Associate Professor of Management and 2017 recipient of the King's Award for Excellence in Teaching, presented a lecture entitled “The Competencies Needed to Lead Non-profit Organizations” to a large crowd in the Spriet Learning Commons.
Congratulations to honoured students.
