The Andrew McMahon Standards of Excellence Awards

Established in memory of Andrew M. McMahon, B.Sc. 1959, a former president of the Engineering Society and member of the Board of Trustees.

My father was passionate about Queen's. While attending the University, he was very active in the Engineering Society and the AMS. After graduation, he stayed involved and later served on the Board of Trustees. He was killed in an automobile accident in February, 1987.

This award was created through Northern Telecom (he was Exec. VP), Bell Canada (Exec. VP), and the family to support Engineering students in both their academic and extracurricular endeavours. He believed school was not just about academics, it was a full balance of athletic, extracurricular and volunteer involvement.
