Students Written Up! …For All The Right Reasons!
This year the residence life program has started a positive contributor initiative. RA's identify residents who they think have made a positive contribution to residence life over the month. These are residence students who demonstrate that they care about their community and who go that extra mile to improve the community and the experience for others around them.
The following is a list of students who were acknowledged as making a positive contribution to residence and the Bishop’s community in the month of September:
Sarah Simone Landry
Andrew Peter Whalley
Brendan G. Irvin
All of the students mentioned above received a certificate of appreciation from the residence life program to recognize their contribution to the Bishop’s community.
