Congratulations Rob Baker

Rob Baker of Tragically HipRob Baker saying thank youLast night at the Kingston Branch of the Queen’s University Alumni Association, Rob Baker (Tragically Hip) was honoured with the Padre Laverty Award for outstanding service to Queen’s and the Kingston community.

As Kingston Branch President, Lee Wetherall says, “Rob Baker may be a famous rock star but he has never forgotten his Kingston and Queen’s roots.”

Of course the School of Graduate Studies and graduate students both at Queen’s and throughout Ontario, have had the opportunity to meet Rob, as he was more than happy to be a judge at the inaugural Ontario 3 Minute Thesis competition held at Queen’s last year and again at McMaster this year.

On behalf of all graduate students and schools, congratulations Rob.
