As educators, we’re always proud when our students achieve strong academic results, but we also want to know they’re equipped to thrive beyond their school years. We need to look beyond test scores and remember that academia is just one piece of a holistic education. The personal growth that students experience during their school years plays an equally important role in helping them build a fulfilling life.
This year we are proud to present Associate Professor Amanda Whitfort (’87) with the Strathcona Medal. Amanda is a shining example of alumnae who has a positive impact on our world. She has made significant legislative and policy changes for animal rights in Hong Kong and continues to do good work in Animal Law.
