Once in a while, what a student accomplishes just floors us. While achieving an outstanding academic record, this student also took initiative to do things for others. There was never a complaint when we asked this student to volunteer to do something extra. We were so impressed that we created something to recognize this.
So we created this "Academic Excellence and Community Engagement" award.
For this inaugural year, this award goes to Nathalie Thibert.
This recognition is given to a graduating, full-time student in any Physics and Astronomy Honors Specialization or Major module offered by the department who has a)shown initiatives for outreach b)volunteered for events organized by P&A and c)an excellent academic record (> 80% modular average).
