President’s Surgite Award winners honoured

Congratulations to Christopher Paul Yendt, Master of Education, Administration and Leadership in Education, Leona Yiu, Master of Business Administration, Business Analytics, and Joshua Black, PhD candidate, Psychology, Social/Personality.

They were among 10 students awarded the 2016-17 President’s Surgite Award.

The annual award recognizes students who have demonstrated exemplary leadership in a student club, organization, association or team; done something exceptional that helped to advance Brock’s academic reputation; made a significant contribution to student life at Brock; or provided a valuable service to Brock or the Niagara community.

Interim President Tom Traves recently thanked the award winners, saying it was important for the University to recognize leadership among the student body and to show appreciation for outstanding efforts.

“It’s about saying, ‘You’ve really done something special. You’ve contributed to the development of the University. You’ve contributed to the quality of student life at the University and bettered the lives of those in the Brock and broader community,’” he said. “We want to recognize that work and say ‘Well done. Bravo.’”
