Call for Nominations for Graduating Student Awards

Posted by Stephanie Rogers on March 12, 2018 in News

The Graduation Awards Committee is calling for nominations for the Distinguished Graduate Awards and the Noel Enman Award, which are granted to students graduating in May.

Distinguished Graduate Awards:

Distinguished Graduate Awards are designed to express acknowledgement and appreciation to graduating students who have, through their time, energy, talent and leadership, enriched the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus community during their studies without neglecting academic pursuits. Recipients are recognized for contributions made through their involvement over time in multiple activities, including, but not limited to, student government, campus activities, community service, sport and recreation, internationalization, or other campus programs. A Distinguished Graduate Award is given based on the totality of a student’s contributions to the Agricultural Campus. Students graduating from all Faculty of Agriculture programs are eligible for Distinguished Graduate Awards. While there is no limit on the number of graduates who may receive the awards, typically there are fewer than five. Students graduating from any of the Faculty’s programs are eligible to be nominated for these awards.

Noel Enman Award:

This award was instituted in 1984 in memory of Noel Enman (1961-1983). It is presented annually to a graduating technician or technology student whose personality and fellowship have contributed to student life and activities, thereby gaining the respect of the students and faculty.

Nomination Process

Students, staff or faculty may nominate a student by submitting their name with a statement of the reasons why the individual qualifies for the award. All nominated students will then be asked to complete an information sheet that the Committee will consider in determining award recipients.

All nominations must be submitted to Keltie Jones ( no later than March 31st.
