Two DEVS Students Receive Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award

Two DEVS Students Receive Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award

One of the highest honours a student can receive from Queen's was awarded to two DEVS students this year, Asha Gordon (Artsci 2018) and Emilio Frometa (MIR 2018).

Asha Gordon has been actively working on campus to create dialogue around race and ethnic inclusion in the Queen’s community through her  work with the Queen’s Black Academic Society and the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre. She also worked with colleagues, students and alumni to co-found the Queen’s Black Alumni Chapter.

Emilio Frometa is the founder of the Autism Mentorship Program, an amazing organization that pairs varsity athletes with children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). He is also is the offensive captain of the Queen’s football team.

Congratulations Asha and Emilio, you are both a great example of the DEVS philosophy in action as you act local  and think global!

David McDonald Receives the Frank Knows Award for Excellence in Teaching

Professor David McDonald is the recipient of the Frank Knox Award for Excellence in Teaching.  This award is to recognize and acknowledge Queen’s University professors that demonstrate an outstanding commitment to the education of their students through their remarkable teaching.  This is a student initiative wherein students at large are responsible for determining the recipients of the award each year, and DEVS is thrilled that Profesor McDonald has been selected as the 2017/2018 recipient.

The award is named in honour of Frank Knox, a professor of economics who taught at Queen’s from the 1920’s to the 1960’s. Professor Knox demonstrated tremendous dedication in his teaching of undergraduates. As a result, the Award serves as a reminder to all, teachers and students alike, of the necessity of a strong commitment to the high quality of teaching at Queen’s.
