Five outstanding students will receive the highest award students can receive from Queen's University. Students are selected by a committee headed by Queen's University Rector Alexandra da Silva for their distinguished service to the university in non-athletic, extra-curricular activities, with the three tenets being service, leadership, character.
This year's recipients are:
Zachary Baum (Comp‘17, MSc’19) – A transformative leader who has worked tirelessly to put Queen’s School of Computing on the map, Zac has been key in recruiting students to Queen’s while simultaneously strengthening the programming they will be met with upon their arrival to campus.
Erika Shannon Campbell (Artsci’19) – A role model in the truest sense of the word, Erika has addressed the topics of consent and mental health by taking an educational and preventative approach. Using an intersectional mindset, Erika has been a part of various initiatives that make both main campus and The Bader International Study Centre safer and more inclusive places.
Benji Christie (Sc’19) – A true servant in his commitment to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Benji has been involved broadly and deeply in shaping the extra-curricular and academic experiences of his fellow students. From the Engineering Advisory Board, to Alumni Relations Committee, to the Board of Directors for the Campus Bookstore at Queen’s, Benji has explored unique ways of making his mark on the community.
Olivia Rondeau (Ed’19) – A passionate champion of education in her time at Queen’s, Olivia has become deeply connected with Indigenous communities and has gone above and beyond her capacity as a teacher candidate. Developing and publicizing classroom resources on indigeneity, Olivia is committed to sharing her knowledge with all teachers.
Ampai Thammachack (Artsci’20) – A humble and resilient leader, Ampai has made an undeniable impact on marginalized communities and mental health at Queen’s and beyond. Through her charities Step Above Stigma and Glass Slipper, Ampai has raised awareness and funding that is transformative.
