Celebrating Student Success: 2014-2015 FHASS Student Awards

FHASS held its annual Student Awards Ceremony at Macdonald-Heaslip Hall on Sheridan’s Trafalgar campus on June 8, 2015. The well-attended event brought administration, faculty, staff, students, and their families together to recognize student success from the 2014-2015 academic year and celebrate excellence within and beyond FHASS. After Dean Has Malik’s welcoming remarks the evening’s keynote speech was delivered by Sheridan alumna Athra Walied, a graduate of Sheridan’s ESL and Paralegal programs. Athra went on from Sheridan to graduate with her BA in Social Sciences from York University in 2013. She is currently a manager at Evergreen College and is working toward her Master’s in Public Policy and Administration at Ryerson University.
