Celebrating Student Success: 2015-2016 FHASS Student Awards

FHASS held its annual Student Awards Ceremony at Macdonald-Heaslip Hall on Sheridan’s Trafalgar campus on June 6, 2016. The event once again brought administration, faculty, staff, students, and their families together to recognize student success from the 2015-2016 academic year and celebrate excellence within and beyond FHASS.

Special guests, including individual award sponsors, donors, and representatives from Nelson Education Ltd. and Pearson Education Canada, helped our FHASS program coordinators acknowledge and reward the excellent academic and personal growth demonstrated by students in Sheridan’s English, General Education, General Arts & Science, Humanities & Social Sciences, Creativity & Community Service, ESL, and Breadth programs.

As with each iteration of these awards, the winning work of the recipients of this year’s awards (listed below) represent the culmination of hard work, perseverance, self-improvement, and success at the heart of academic study and the human desire for knowledge and experience that lies at the very heart of our discipline. Congratulations to everyone involved!
