On April 5, the Liu Institute for Global Issues brimmed with energy and enthusiasm as the School of Kinesiology hosted its annual Student Leadership Awards banquet.
Recognizing the volunteerism, commitment, and dedication of Kinesiology student leaders throughout the 2016-2017 year, this event acknowledges those who contribute to a vibrant and thriving KINmmunity.
“The success of our community is largely determined by those who lead, and the strength of our community is only as strong as the quality of our leadership,” said the School of Kinesiology’s Director, Dr. Robert Boushel in his welcome address.
“The undergraduate leadership in the School of Kinesiology is vibrant, healthy, and stronger than ever.’”
113 Kinesiology students were recognized for their involvement in eight different categories; many taking on more than one role in the following areas: Orientations & Transitions, Academic Advising, Co-op, the International Summer Program, BodyWorks and Active Kids, Kinesiology Peer Academic Coaching, as well as the many programs and events run by the Kinesiology Undergraduate Society, their coordinators, and committees.
During his keynote address, Assistant Professor Dr. Moss Norman shared some powerful insights connecting leadership, human movement and wanting to make a difference.
“What we’re recognizing with these awards is your selfless giving without the expectation of return—and that’s what defines us as a profession. A sense of purpose that centres on giving of one’s time, knowledge, passion for the sake of others.”
Congratulations to all our Student Leadership Award Winners!
