THUNDER BAY – LETTERS – It’s almost September, and for Lakehead University in Thunder Bay that means welcoming hundreds of new students to campus. We are so fortunate to have such a dynamic institution in our midst; one that is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2015.
I remember my early days as a part-time student in the mid-1990s and the good fortune I had to be placed in the first-year class of Paul Driben in the Department of Anthropology. Thanks to Professor Driben and other dedicated instructors like him, I was inspired and encouraged to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree, which led to me landing a pivotal role in my career in the field of public health. Now, with a master’s degree in public administration under my belt, I am proud to be the Liberal Candidate for the Federal election.
It is the foundation of education that enhances my ability to give back to my community. Lakehead has provided life-changing educational opportunities for me and for more than 57,000 graduates living around the world. I am proud to celebrate its 50th Anniversary and confident that Lakehead University will continue play a foundational role for us all in the decades ahead.
