The ceremony concluded with the presentation of every student in attendance with a certificate of merit from the college. Remarking on the success of the event, Prof. Freeman-Roth said, “I am thrilled to be able to honour the hard work of so many Lady Eaton College students. It was great to see so many staff, faculty and alumni of Lady Eaton College support these students by coming to this event and by their generous donations to our Fellows’ Prize Fund.” The awards are entirely funded through the generosity of the faculty and staff at Lady Eaton College.
Founded in 1968, Lady Eaton College is the second-oldest college on the Symons Campus. The Dean’s Honour Roll and Fellows’ Awards Luncheon takes place every November. Prizes for fourth year students are presented in a special Spring ceremony.
