Holly Mathias, DEVS graduate

Holly Mathias, BA (Hons) 2016, was awarded the Marty Memorial Scholarship from the Queen’s University Alumni Association. The scholarship, valued at $14,000 for one year of study and research, honours a female graduate who is continuing her studies and shows community leadership. Holly was selected as the deserving recipient from more than 30 finalists. The award was established in memory of Dr. Aletta Marty, M.A. 1894, LL.D. 1919, and her sister, Sophie Marty, a distinguished graduate of Queen's University. 

Dr. Marty was a pioneer woman in the field of education, and Canada's first woman public school inspector. Miss Sophie Marty was for many years Head of the Department of Modern Language at Stratford Collegiate Institute.
