Past and Present Shining Students

Since 2017/18, students have been recognized and participated in our Shining Student initiative. Many students are nominated in several academic years, but for this purpose, they are listed the first year they are nominated. Please note that some of the details may have changed for the Shining Student profiles featured within this section. For example, many of these students have since graduated. Quite often we have name changes for programs, courses and departments and faculty and staff may have moved on, but at the time of posting to the web, the details were current. If you would like to learn more about something mentioned and can't find a reference to it on our websites, please contact artsci.communication@uleth.ca and we will do our best to assist.
