Caileigh Simpson (PHE '13)

Caileigh embodies the spirit of initiative that characterizes student life at Queen’s, but what differentiates her from others is her ability to build positive relationships with every single person she encounters. Caileigh has been heavily involved in Physical Health and Kinesiology Education Orientation Week, she served as a Coach in her second year and then served as a Vet in her fourth year. As the 2012-2013 Vice President of University Affairs for the Physical Health Education and Kinesiology Student’s Association, Caileigh has demonstrated exceptional leadership and has been a positive influence on countless students in their involvement at Queen’s University. Caileigh contributed to the formal committee for Physical Education and Kinesiology students for three years, which represents another valued commitment to her school community. In addition, she deserves special recognition for her courage and initiative when she took on the role as AMS Deputy Speaker and Chief Electoral Officer in February 2013. She put in an unbelievable amount of time into maintaining the integrity of the elections and ensuring that all student voices were heard. This was an impromptu situation that required an incredible amount of time that Caileigh gladly stepped up to the plate to take on. She went well above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that AMS Assembly operated smoothly and that the elections were fairly executed by her and the team she led. Her positive attitude and Queen’s spirit has been described by many as “infectious.” Often regarded as a “born leader,” she is never afraid to step forward and take on new projects if she knows that it will benefit those around her. Her hard work ethic has benefited both her School and the greater Queen’s community.
