Every year Student Life honours the "achievements and contributions of campus and community leaders who have made a lasting difference in the lives of our students and in the strong relationship that is fostered between the campus and greater community". This year, physics students Kristine Keon and Justin Medeiros were recognized for their efforts in these areas at the Student Life Awards night which took place on March 21st, 2018.
Kristine Keon was awarded the "Kishaadigeh Award". This award is presented to an Aboriginal Student who is engaged in co-curricular activities that enrich their educational experience, achieving well academically, connected in meaningful ways to the larger community, actively encouraging others to become involved and is a role model for other Aboriginal learners.
Justin Medeiros was awarded the "Roberta Mason Award", which recognizes a student in any semester that, for the first time, has become actively involved in campus life and has made outstanding contributions to a club or organization at the University of Guelph.
Congratulations Kristine and Justin!
