Trent students receive excellence awards
As the 2002/03 academic year draws to a close, some Trent University students have been recognized for outstanding achievements.
Student Tanya Roberts-Davis has been awarded the annual prize from Soroptomist International of Peterborough. The $250 prize is awarded to an outstanding student in the Women’s Studies Program at Trent, and Ms. Roberts-Davis was nominated by associate professor Margaret Hobbs and professor Charmaine Eddy for exemplary academic achievement and involvement in social justice projects.
Student Dawn McIlmoyle, a 30-year-old single mother of two sons (age 8 and 5), won the Soroptomist Women’s of Opportunity Award. The $750 prize was established in 1972 and helps women heads of household obtain the skills and education necessary to improve their employment status and standard of living. Ms. McIlmoyle is in the second year of a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
The Trent Central Student Association has awarded three students with "Trent Student Awards of Excellence." Kim Fielding, Candace Shaw and Geoff Cameron were chosen based on student participation and leadership in various fields of activity, both in the Trent and Peterborough communities. The fields of activity specifically taken into account were politics (student and community), academics, social, drama, art, volunteerism and athletics.
