Fall Convocation entered its second day at Queen’s University with two ceremonies at Grant Hall.

An honorary degree was conferred upon Debbie Docherty, who spent much of her career at Hotel Dieu Hospital in Kingston for years and served as a mentor to Queen’s students in occupational therapy, nursing, medicine and physiotherapy. She also worked internationally with the Queen’s International Center for the Advancement of Community Based Rehabilitation.

Fall Convocation concludes on Thursday with the final two of the six ceremonies.
