Congratulations Marshall

Please join me in congratulating Marshall Asch, who was just named to the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences Society of Excellence.

Membership to the Society of Excellence is awarded to recent undergraduate students who have graduated with excellent academic records, and who have contributed to the community – either on or off-campus – in some substantial manner.

As an undergrad student, Marshall was involved with the Society for Computing and Information Sciences (as the elected System Administrator), volunteered and helped organize Roboticon, was the departmental undergraduate representative on both the Computer Infrastructure Committee and the Curriculum Committee, helped organize the Guelph Local Hack Day, and was a key member of the eNuk health and environment monitoring app development team.

In addition to this, Marshall won the Dr. James Linders Scholarship in 2018, the Transforming Tomorrow Award at DeltaHacks in 2019, was on the Dean’s Honours list every semester, and was awarded a Northern Science Training Program grant to support the work he is doing in the Inuit community of Rigolet, Nunatsiavut.

Marshall recently started his MSc in Computer Science, and will be spending the summer as a Mitacs Intern working at the offices of Left in Maple Ridge, British Columbia on the Bridging the Digital Divide research program.

Congratulations Marshall! This is fantastic news, and very well deserved.
