Recognizing Achievements

The Canadian Cancer Society gained over $10,000 through Operation Fresh Start. Thank you to the nine individuals who bravely parted with their hair, those who supported the project with donations, and a tremendous congratulations to Jenn Kang who spearheaded the project and “sacrificed ” the most hair…18 inches! It was a wonderful project.

Congratulations to the student team from the Williams School of Business who won the 2006 NIBS (Network of International Business Schools) Case Competition in Oslo, Norway. The Bishop’s team consisted of Erik Desrosiers, Rachel Kelly, Charlene Marion and Samuel Saintonge and was coached by Profs. Bill Robson, Lissa McRae and Robert Palmer. This is the third time Bishop’s has taken first place in this prestigious international competition.

Dr. Trygve Ugland (Political Studies) was part of the Norwegian delegation to the Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Committee of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, Switzerland. The SPS Committee is the forum where WTO members exchange information on all aspects related to food safety and animal and plant health. The SPS Committee discussed, among other topics, the latest situation on avian influenza, mad cow disease, foot and mouth disease, and a number of other trade concerns. The issue of “regionalization” was also central to the agenda.

Professor George Rideout of the Drama Department won the 2005-06 Education Award as Lennoxville honoured active and selfless residents at the 15th annual Outstanding Achievement Ceremony.

At the same ceremony Anouk Boulanger of the women’s basketball team won the Sports Award. A stand-out Gaiter, Anouk also represented Canada at the World University Games last summer.

In late February Anouk was also named to the Quebec University Basketball League first team all-star team (and Defensive Player of the Year), along with teammates Laure Pitfield and Emily Crofton. Emily was named MVP of the league and first-team All Canadian. On the men’s side Jeff Szita was named to the first team all-star team, while point guard (and one of the smallest players in the league!) Kevin Watson was named a second-team all-star.
