On Wednesday I was honoured to stand alongside Yousr El Sharawy, and Paul Mesman to accept the 2017 Faculty William Winegard Exemplary Volunteer Award. Since then I’ve had numerous people stop me in the halls to congratulate me on what they say was a well-deserved recognition. To say that it has been an extremely humbling experience is a bit of an understatement.
Tonight the University of Guelph hosted their annual Student Life Awards. The event honours students, staff, faculty, and community partners who work to make a difference to the student experience at the University of Guelph.
On Friday, whilst perusing the Twitters, I stumbled on this gem of a tweet:
I’m currently sitting in the Halifax airport awaiting my flight to Goose Bay on my way to Rigolet. I’m still rather exhausted from the weekend, but I’m also extremely happy and proud of the students who came together to build solutions to support positive mental health on campus during this weekend’s Guelph Hacks for Mental Health hackathon.
