Mount Co-op Student of the Year Awards (2016)

The Mount Co-op Student of the Year Award started in 1999 to recognize the achievements of Mount co-op students and to mark the 20th anniversary of the Mount’s co-op program. Each year, deserving students are nominated by employers for the Mount Co-op Student of the Year Awards. The selection committee had the difficult task of choosing one student from each discipline to be named the Mount Co-op Student of the Year (2016). The selection criteria included academic achievement, community involvement, contribution to the employer, and the impact co-operative education has had on personal and professional development. The awards were presented on April 4, 2017 at the Mount Student Academic Reception.
